Spearmint is a member of the mint family that is widely distributed throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Our domestic spearmint is a hybrid of uncertain origin, but with a naturalized range that includes the U.S.
The dried leaf is commonly used in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. The herb is also tinctured or used to make syrup. Additionally, you can infuse in oil or tincture for use in making salves, ointments, soaps, lotions and other skin and hair products.
