Essential Oil of Peppermint
Primary Product Description:
peppermint is native to southern European coastal planes and is often renowned as nature’s most versatile essential oil. In Greek Mythology, Pluto bequeathed his favorite Nymph, “Mentha” (peppermint), to assure that whoever encountered her would love her. However, despite its Mediterranean origins, scholars have found peppermint oil to be prolific in ancient Chinese, Japanese and Egyptian medicine.
Peppermint is a naturally occurring hybrid of the watermint and spearmint plants. The cross-bred lineage of peppermint yields high levels of menthol, which translates to powerful medicinal properties. The essential oil is derived by steam distillation of the peppermint plants aerial leaves. This essential oil has become a key homeopathic remedy for its ability to ease digestive complications and muscle aches/tension.
