A hybrid (cross between the watermint and spearmint) mint, the peppermint plant is indigenous to Europe, but is now cultivated throughout the world.
Peppermint generally thrives in shade. It is sometimes referred to as the world's "oldest medicine", with archaeological evidence placing its use as far back as ten thousand years ago. The leaves and flowering tops are the usable portions of the plant. The leaves and stems have relatively high oil content and are the parts that are used medicinally.
Synergy's Peppermint Oil
Peppermint Oil [Digestive]. This popular flavoring has a variety of uses in herbology. A couple of drops can be added to a glass of water or a cup of hot water for a soothing, refreshing after-meal drink.
Peppermint (100% pure Mentha piperita oil) has been used to help promote digestion and has cooling and stimulating properties. Many people put a touch of Peppermint Oil on the temples.
While other manufacturers may be tempted to sell oil of cornmint or menthol as peppermint oil, Synergy Worldwide sells only pure, unadulterated peppermint oil. A little goes a long way.
