1) Peppermint Basics
The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in doTERRA's PEPPERMINT Essential Oil—distinguishes the best quality PEPPERMINT from other products.
Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, PEPPERMINT also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function.
PEPPERMINT is steam distilled using the whole plant in the process and has a minty, fresh, herbaceous aroma. doTERRA's PEPPERMINT is still sourced in the Pacific Northwest, United States, and is now starting to include other areas of the world as demand has grown. The Pacific Northwest is ideal for peppermint because of the high amounts of rainfall they have each year. This gives the peppermint a high menthol content, which gives it its sweet, minty aroma and flavor.
This mini class will highlight some of PEPPERMINT’s many remarkable uses.
