Peppermint is one of the few “hybrid” plants that has become a staple in our society - it’s a crossbreed of two plants: Mentha viridis and Mentha aquatica! The plant itself has green serrated leaves and purple to reddish-violet stems and flowers. It stands up to 1 meter high and has a root system that’s equally large. Historically, Peppermint has been used by cultures spanning the globe for indigestion, nausea, sore throat, diarrhea, headaches, toothaches, and cramps - as well as several other remedies!

Peppermint essential oil is commonly used as a flavoring agent in pharmaceuticals like cough, cold, and digestive remedies. In addition, it’s used as a flavoring in many foods, especially candies and chewing gums, alcoholic and soft drinks, as well as tobacco. It’s also used often in soaps, toothpaste, detergents, cosmetics, colognes, and perfumes.
Peppermint oil is virtually non-toxic and non-irritant, however, it can cause sensitivities on the skin if used dermally and in concentration form.
