Peppermint, (US) mentha piperita
Country of Origin: USABotanical Name: Mentha Piperita
Peppermint US has a light, refreshing and a clear minty aroma. Clear in colour and is frequently used in after-dinner mints, and is also popular after a bout of over-indulgence. This oil is especially good for digestive problems and to refresh a tired mind, hence great for concentration and study.
Country of Origin: USA.
Plant Family: Lamiaceae (Labiatae).
Method of Extraction: The oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the herb.
North America has become the world's largest producer of this oil, which is steam distilled from the leaves of the familiar, fast-growing herb. Most of the production goes into confectionery, toiletries and toothpaste, its sweet, cooling aroma is familiar to all of us.
The American crops are descendants of the highest quality peppermint. Because of the size of its crop, the USA has avoided the frequent adulteration of Peppermint oil, which occurs elsewhere in the world. US Peppermint can be used in exactly the same way as English Peppermint. Its aroma is lighter, less pungent and more familiar; some people prefer it.
