Spearmint (Mentha Spicata)
Spearmint is a perennial plant that grows 11–40 inches tall and flourishes in temperate climates. It is widely used in gums, candies, and dental products for its minty taste, and to promote fresh breath.
Spearmint has been used for centuries for its digestive benefits. Its sweet, refreshing aroma is cleansing and uplifting, making it ideal to evoke a sense of focus and positive mood. Spearmint is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option to use on children and those with sensitive skin.
In cooking, Spearmint is frequently used in salads, drinks, and desserts, but it can also be used in homemade salad dressings and to marinate meats.
Emotionally, Spearmint is known as the Oil of Confident Speech, inspiring clarity of thought and confident verbal expression. The individual in need of Spearmint may hide their thoughts, opinions and ideas by withholding their voice. Spearmint encourages inner clarity about one’s personal convictions and opinions. It then assists individuals in translating that inner clarity into words.
Spearmint can be a helpful remedy for those who struggle with communicating clearly for a wide range of reasons, from feeling scattered and inarticulate to stumbling over one’s words. It assists individuals in becoming emotionally clear about what they want to say, and then saying it. In short, Spearmint can help individuals access their inner light and convey that the light to the world with clarity and confidence.
