Organic Peppermint India Essential Oil
Obtained from the flowering top and green leaves of the Mentha Piperita plant, Organic Peppermint India Essential Oil is a variety of the famous Peppermint plant found in India.
Piperita has slightly hairy serrated leaves with pinkish-mauve flowers,
arranged in a long conical shape. According to Greek mythology the
nymph Mentha was sexually pursued by Pluto, whose jealous wife
Persephone, trod her ferociously into the ground. Pluto then turned her
into a herb, knowing that people would appreciate her for years to come.
That herb turned out to be Peppermint! There’s early evidence that
cultivation of Peppermint started around 1000 B.C. Its strong mint
scent, as well as its uses and benefits makes Peppermint Essential Oil a
staple for many today!
