Peppermint (Mentha x Piperita L.) is more than just a refreshing flavoring for tea or candy; it is a powerful plant that has been used for centuries for its countless health benefits. The scientific name for peppermint is Mentha piperita and it is widely cultivated in Europe, Asia, and North America.
Peppermint Essential Oil is derived from the leaves of the peppermint plant by a steam distillation process that concentrates the active ingredients into a potent oil. This oil is composed of mainly menthol, rosmarinic acid, and menthone, which are responsible for most of its therapeutic actions.
Here are some of the impressive benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil:
