What is Peppermint oil?

Peppermint essential oil comes from the leaves of the peppermint plant, which is a hybrid of the water mint and spearmint plants. It is an herb characterized by its square stem, dark green leaves, and small bunches of light-lavender flowers. The peppermint plant can grow to be approximately 5.5–11 meters tall and grows best by streams or in wet locations with a lot of rainfall. Due to these specific water needs, peppermint is most commonly cultivated in Europe, Asia, and North America. The whole peppermint plant is used in the steam distillation process to yield the Peppermint essential oil we all know and love.
