Spearmint is widely used in gums, candies, and dental products for its minty taste, and to promote fresh breath. Its sweet, refreshing and cleansing aroma promotes a fresh and invigorating atmosphere when diffused. Spearmint is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option to use topically 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.
