Peppermint is a natural hybrid of two varieties of mint (water mint and spearmint) that grows all throughout Europe and North America. Peppermint leaves and peppermint essential oil have both been utilized for medicinal purposes. Peppermint oil is an essential oil extracted from the peppermint plant's floral parts and leaves.
Peppermint is now recommended for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), other digestive issues, the common cold, sinus infections, headaches, and a variety of other ailments. Peppermint oil is also recommended for headaches, muscle aches, joint discomfort, and itching when applied to the skin.
