Mint has been used for thousands of years for anything from medicinal wraps to talismans that scare away demons. In traditional medicines, spearmint has been used to treat fever, headache, digestive disorders, and colic. Today, menthol (in cough drops and syrups) is among the most common medicinal uses of spearmint extracts. Recent research is exploring the potential of Mentha spicata extracts in the treatment of gout, cancer, and as an anti-nausea medication.
