This is a first cutting spearmint, a very fresh type. The cool spring weather can produce a nice product. The spearmint oil is steam distilled, then redistilled to make a clean smelling product. This spearmint is sweeter and greener in flavor and odor than our regular catalog spearmint. We think it is so nice, it was worth having two in the catalog.
Use at a rate of 0.3 to 1.0%. For a batch of lip balm that makes 50 tubes (.15 ounces each) or 25 jars (.25 ounces each) use from 1 to 3 grams. This converts to approximately 1 to 3 milliliters if you would rather use a pipette. We generally do not recommend using more than 2 mL in this amount of lip balm.
