Spearmint Leaf Tea has been used in a variety of products throughout the centuries. From cooking to toothpaste, cosmetics to tea, spearmint is a great addition to your daily routine.

Cool, minty and refreshing spearmint can be used many different ways. Spearmint oil is often used in beauty products. The leaf extract is found in gum and toothpaste. Mint Balm is a salve that is rubbed on the forehead, nose or chest for fast relief.

Using Spearmint Tea in your diet:

Herbs are so important to add into your diet. They contain no calories, fat or sodium. If you are adding them to a dish, try to add them at the end of cooking as heat can destroy the health benefits. Also, you want to chop them finely, don't crush them. For a fresh burst of spearmint flavor, just snap the leaf and add to drink or top a desert. One of the best ways to add spearmint into your diet is to add it in a glass of ice water.

Try this recipe for a minty summer refresher for a twist on water:
