Essential Oil Name: Japanese Peppermint Botanical Name: Mentha Arvensis Plant Part: Leaf Extraction Method: Steam Distilled Origin: Japan/India Description: There are several species of the peppermint plant, many of which can grow to 3 feet in height, spreading due to their underground 'runners.' The mentha arvensis peppermint has hairy leaves with serrated edges, and purple spiked flowers. This Japanese Peppermint is known for its high menthol content, so high, in fact, that menthol crystals sometimes form right on the leaves. Common Uses: The familiar aroma of peppermint is known for both its warming and cooling properties. Peppermint is commonly used in tea, chewing gum, and candy, but the Essential Oil that we sell is much, much stronger and more concentrated, and should therefore be used in moderation. A very fresh and clean smelling herb, it is a refreshing and energizing mental stimulant. Additionally, peppermint can be used as a deterrent against unwanted rodents and insects. Can mix with basil, eucalyptus, geranium, grapefruit, juniper, lavender, lemon, myrrh, pine, rosemary.
