    About Mentha piperita

    Peppermint originally comes from Europe. However, around 75 percent of the annual requirement for Peppermint is now grown in the USA. Around half a kilo of peppermint leaves are steam distilled in order to create every 15 ml bottle of Peppermint essential oil, and Peppermint is also a key ingredient in Young Living’s Deep Relief® Roll-On.
