Peppermint Essential Oil
100% Certified Organic Essential Oil.
Mentha piperita (India)
Peppermint was first cultivated for medical use in eighteenth-century England and many believe that its provenance can be traced as far back as Ancient Egyptian times, when it reportedly remedied indigestion. It is a perennial herb that grows up to 1 metre high and has slightly hairy serrated leaves with pinkish-mauve flowers arranged in a long conical shape. Its chemical components are menthol, menthone, 1,8-cineole, methyl acetate, methofuran, isomenthone, limonene, b-pinene, a-pinene, germacrene-d, trans-sabinene hydrate and pulegone. Peppermint essential oil has a fresh, sharp, menthol aroma.
