Peppermint has an invigorating and fresh mint aroma. This amazing and versatile essential oil has been widely studied for its potential health benefits and for its ability to enhance mental acuity. It is also known for its impressive support of digestive functions..
Peppermint is native to Europe and is a natural hybrid of the water mint and spearmint plants. Growing to approximately 60 cm tall, peppermint plants bloom from July through August, sprouting tiny, purple flowers in whorls and terminal spikes. Preparations for extracting peppermint essential oil begin with the leaves and flowering tops of the plant, where menthol—peppermint’s primary active component—is extracted.
