Part used: Plant

Spearmint, also known as lamb mint and mackerel mint, is a species of mint. It is native to Europe and southern parts of Asia. It’s a perennial herbaceous plant that grows up to 1 m in height. The word ‘spear’ comes from the pointy leaf tips. Its long history of use goes back 2000 years for its uplifting aroma and as a treatment for the bites of mad dogs. It’s popular contemporary use includes treatment for nausea and as an antiseptic. It’s very well renowned for its use in toothpaste and mouth washes.

Spearmint was used by ancient civilisations to flavour food, for perfumes and as a bath scent. Ancient Greeks used it as a restorative, similar to the way we use smelling salts today. In Athens, where every part of the body was perfumed with a different scent, Spearmint was especially reserved for the arms. In the 14th century Spearmint was used for whitening teeth. Spearmint has been utilised in the treatment of fever, colds, indigestion, morning sickness, motion sickness and as a rub for joint stiffness and muscle soreness. It has also been used for its antiseptic properties. Today, it is best known as a flavouring agent in a range of oral hygiene products, including toothpaste, mouthwash and chewing gum.
