Yerba Buena (“good herb”) is the Spanish name for a number of aromatic plants belonging to the mint family. In Central America Yerba buena often refers to Mentha citrata, a true mint sometimes referred to as "bergamot mint" with its distinctive citrus aroma and enjoyed as a culinary herb and beverage tea. Bergamot Mint contains linalool which gives it some properties similar to lavender. The leaves and flowering tops are steam distilled to extract the essential oil.
