Mint The Best (Mentha spicata) lives up to his name with a spearmint flavor that will put a little zing in your apple mojito smoothie. Or, while you're taking a spa treatment, mix up a spearmint sugar scrub with coconut oil to treat your skin! It's all the rage to use your herbs for eating, drinking, and skincare! This mint grows up to two feet wide and tall. It can be a bully in the garden, so we strongly advise planting in a garden container to guard against its vigilante habits.
