There are different types of mint, each with its own scent. Spearmint is an aromatic plant used in cooking, especially in Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. Its fresh menthol odour is known to quickly revitalize and to have a calming effect on the nerves. Spearmint essential oil is used in aromatherapy to help relieve headaches, cold and cough symptoms, and as a carminative and antispasmodic to help relieve digestive discomfort.
