Spearmint Hydrosol is one of my favorite hydrosols. It's uplifting and smells fresh and minty.
I personally find it to be extraordinarily refreshing, uplifting and energizing without being as intense as Peppermint Hydrosol or the mint essential oils such as Peppermint or Spearmint. I keep a bottle in my fridge and enjoy misting it on my face when I'm hot or exhausted. I also ove it as a foot mist for tired feet.
