Peppermint Oil

An herb prized for its medicinal benefits and distinctive flavor, peppermint is a naturally occurring hybrid of spearmint and water mint. Unlike other mints, however, peppermint contains in its oil the powerful therapeutic ingredient menthol, as well as menthone, menthyl acetate. Peppermint oil is often used as a flavoring agent in pharmaceuticals and in foods, especially chewing gum as well as a fragrance component in soaps, toothpaste and detergents. It acts as a muscle relaxant, particularly in the digestive tract, and it can also reduce the inflammation of nasal passages and relieve muscle pains.
