Peppermint - The History of This Favorite Essential Oil

Peppermint - The History of This Favorite Essential Oil

According to ancient Greek mythology, all the plants in the mentha genus get their name from a nymph called Minthe. Minthe had an affair with Hades, god of the underworld. Upon finding out this betrayal, Hades' wife, Persephone, cursed the nymph and turned her into a plant. But Hades, who seems to have caught feelings, turned his once lover from a useless plant into one that would be beloved for all humanity. 

 

Largely grown in the US and China, Peppermint is a hybrid plant originating from water mint and spearmint. With a high menthol content, it is a sharp powerful minty oil. Peppermint is often used as a flavoring and in oral hygiene products. With a prized background of use to help the stomach, it can also be used internally or topically to support the digestive system. When topically used, Peppermint has a cooling effect. Diffuse it to bring a sharp and refreshing aroma that can bring focus to any room.
