Botanical Name: Mentha Arvensis
Plant Part: Leaf

Description: There are several species of the peppermint plant, many of which can grow to 3 feet in height, spreading
due to their underground 'runners.' The mentha arvensis peppermint has hairy leaves with serrated edges, and purple
spiked flowers. This Japanese Peppermint is known for its high menthol content, so high, in fact, that menthol crystals
sometimes form right on the leaves.
Common Uses: The familiar aroma of peppermint is known for both its warming and cooling properties. Peppermint is
commonly used in tea, chewing gum, and candy, but the Essential Oil that we sell is much, much stronger and more
concentrated, and should therefore be used in moderation. Additionally, peppermint can be used as a detterent against
unwanted rodents and insects.
