Spearmint

Named after the spear-like shape of its leaves, Spearmint has been a hero for centuries! Traditionally used to help with a wide variety of concerns, ranging from curing sore gums in ye olde medieval times to being used as an aphrodisiac and popular bathwater scent in ancient Greece. Spearmint oil is extracted by steam distilling the flowering tops and is much sweeter than peppermint, as it contains a far less quantity of menthol (0.5% compared to the 40% in peppermint).It is fantastic for stimulating a tired mind, refreshing the skin and senses, and its fragrance is even known to relax stomach muscles and relieve nausea.

We use it in our Dirty Springwash to refresh the skin and mind, and keep you feeling fresh and breezy throughout the day.
