The peppermint plant is a hybrid of water mint and spearmint. It was first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in our Peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the highest-quality peppermint products. Peppermint is frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene. Peppermint essential oil helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally.*
