Native to Europe, Peppermint is most likely a cross between the Water Mint and Spearmint plants. Peppermint Oil has been used for centuries in many health and culinary applications including candy, chewing gum, and oral care products. Peppermint is known for its invigorating aroma and its dual cooling/warming effect. Our Peppermint Oil is steam-distilled from the tops of the Mentha piperita plant. Bottled in the USA.
