Spearmint (mentha spicata) needs little introduction. It's familiar scent and distinct taste have made it popular as both food and medicine for centuries.
Just like with our peppermint hydrosol, we us it in our mouthwash, we add it to our hair rinse and use it in our foot bath, we use it as a spritzer in the heat of summer to help restore energy and cool the skin, we add it to our drinking water and juice for a fresh, minty addition, and we spray it around our house to help freshen the air. Because it is gentler than spearmint essential oil on both the senses and the body, we use this freely in place of the essential oil.
We harvest the leaves and stems of our spearmint plants from our own farm where they are never exposed to any toxic chemicals or poisons, then place them directly into the distiller so we can capture the greatest amount of benefits. The final result is a hydrosol that smells mildly of spearmint, without being overwhelming.
Hydrosols are incredibly versatile and we absolutely love them! They are safe to take internally, but can also be added to baths, skin care products, or used alone as a spritzer.
Hyrdosols and floral waters are not the same thing. True hydrosols can only be made using steam extraction, which allows the essential oils and other vital components of plants to be extracted into water. At Tamara's Herbes, all of our hydrosols are made using a steam distiller, pure spring water, and organic or wild-crafted plants that are free from any chemical residue that can leach into the finished product.
