Spearmint (herb)

SKU: hspe $1.00
Spearmint (Mentha spicata) Perennial. Used as an ingredient in homemade toothpaste, or drinks, teas, or compresses. Likes moist, rich soil in sun or shade. Press into soil and keep moist until germination, which takes about a week. Water only gently so as not to dislodge germinating roots. Will spread to form a patch if given regular water, so keep in pots or inside a border for control. Spearmint is taken internally for flatulence, indigestion, nausea, sore throat, diarrhea, colds, headaches, toothaches, cramps, cancer, bile duct and gallbladder inflammation, gallstones, upper gastrointestinal tract spasms, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and inflammation of respiratory tract. It is also used as an aromatic, stimulant, antiseptic, local anesthetic, and antispasmodic. Externally, spearmint is used for oral mucosal inflammation, arthritis, local muscle and nerve pain, and skin conditions including pruritus and urticaria. In foods and beverages, spearmint is used as a flavoring agent. In manufacturing, spearmint is used in health food products, cosmetics, and oral hygiene products such as mouthwash and toothpaste.
