What is the Genus Species? Mentha spicata CT Carvone

Why is this information important? While there are not many different species of Spearmint, there are many hybrids; and the species also produces chemotypes.

A chemotype (CT) is a designation that tells you that the species has different chemical constituents. This usually occurs because the plant is grown in a different area under a distinct climate that alters the chemistry.

The same rule of thumb goes for hybrids; so it always is a good idea to purchase your essential oils by Common Name and Genus Species so you know what you are getting!

Other common names for Spearmint include: Green Mint, Garden Mint, Fish Mint and Our Lady’s Mint!

Where is the name derived from? The Spearmint plants get their common name from the pointed leaf tips which resemble “spears”. The Genus derivative comes from a Latin word “mente” meaning “thought”.

Why is this information so important? Its not, it’s just a fun fact!
