Fresh herb with a fresh scent
Peppermint is a herbal, perennial plant that can grow up to 1 metre tall and belongs to the labiate family. It grows in European countries, as well as in North & South America. Its high menthol content is responsible for its intense smell and its fresh flavour. Various wild varieties of mint have been used as a healing plant since ancient times. As a result of its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, it has historically been used in naturopathy to combat gastrointestinal disorders and colds.
Peppermint extract is acquired from the leaves and shoots of the plant. Its main components are essential oils (including menthol), triterpenes (secondary phytochemicals) and flavonoids.
