Native to the Mediterranean region, Mentha Spicata - the plant that produces Organic Spearmint Essential Oil - is a hardy perennial herb with bright green lance-shaped, sharply serrated leaves, and pink/lilac-colored flowers. Its low menthol content makes it unique different of its other mint oils. The Greeks and ancient Egypt used Spearmint for many personal uses, especially for its fresh minty scent; a trend that continues down today!
