Latin Name: mentha piperta General Description Some Asian countries have cultivated mint since ancient times. It's been used in Eastern and Western medicine for a variety of ailments including toothaches, morning sickness and cramping. The peppermint plant was brought to the U.S.A. early in the 19th century and these plants were the foundation of what are today the largest peppermint growing centers in the world like the northeastern United States, now practically abandoned, then the Midwestern states of Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin, all decreasing their production. The far eastern states of Oregon and Washington are now the main producers of American peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is used as a flavoring agent in pharmaceuticals, elixers, food and beverages especially chewing gum and confectionery. There is some use as a fragrance. How It's Made The steam distillation of the fresh flowering tops, ideally removed slightly before the plants bloom produces the oil. Properties
