Spearmint leaves are widely recognized for their anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. Although the aroma is similar to peppermint, the menthol content in spearmint is much less, making it a bit milder. Menthol, the main component in mints, has antibacterial properties, and is often used in liniments to stimulate nerve endings and increase local blood flow. Mint cools and refines the skin, and invigorates the senses. It is good for fatigue, headaches, migraines, nervous strain and stress.
