A little about Spearmint...
Spearmint is a sweet and mild mint. It reminds us of studying, chewing gum, and getting focused. Spearmint pairs well with lemon, lavender and lime, or frankincense and cedarwood. We like to put a couple drops on our toothpaste when brushing teeth to help with long lasting fresh breath!
