Spearmint Essential Oil comes from a hardy perennial herb that is native to the Mediterranean region. Spearmint reaches about 1 meter (3 feet) in height. It has characteristic lance-shaped leaves with pink or lilac-colored flowers. The ancient Greeks used Spearmint to scent their bath water. Spearmint Essential Oil has a fresh minty smell reminiscent of Peppermint that is sweeter, and not as sharp.
