Peppermint may be one of the most commonly recognized and universally beloved species of herbs, but it wasn’t always so. In fact, it is actually a cross-breed. The peppermint plant is indigenous to Europe and the Middle East and was first discovered in 1753.
Overall, there are more than 25 species of mint. While many hybrids have come to exist over time, both organically and through intentional cultivation, in the Western world we commonly use a hybrid of mentha, or watermint, and piperita, or spearmint. Included in everything from toothpaste to herbal teas, peppermint is known for its physical and psychological benefits and incorporated into many of our daily rituals.
The sharp yet subtle scent of peppermint is immediately recognizable. This iconic essential oil, when distilled directly from the plant, is associated with increased mental clarity and focus. The vibrant aroma is refreshing yet subtle and never overpowering, making it an ideal choice for a slow burn on a Monday morning—or a Saturday night.
