Spearmint was used by ancient civilisations to flavour food, for perfumes and as a bath scent. Ancient Greeks used it as a restorative, similar to the way we use smelling salts today. In Athens, where every part of the body was perfumed with a different scent, spearmint was especially reserved for the arms. In the 14th century spearmint was used for whitening teeth. Spearmint has been utilised in the treatment of fever, cold, indigestion, morning sickness, motion sickness and as a rub for joint stiffness and muscle soreness. It has also been used for its antiseptic properties. Today of course spearmint is best known as a flavouring agent in a range of products, including toothpaste, mouthwash and chewing gum.
