Some Asian countries have cultivated peppermint 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 United States early in the 19th century, and these plants were the foundation of what are today the largest peppermint growing centers in the world. Peppermint plants were largely first planted in the northeastern United States, now practically abandoned, and then in the Midwestern states of Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconsin, all of which have decreased their production. Today, the far eastern states of Oregon and Washington are now the main producers of American peppermint oil. Peppermint essential oil is used as a flavoring agent in pharmaceuticals, elixirs, food, and beverages, especially chewing gum and confectionery. Organic peppermint essential oil is also used as a fragrance.
How Organic Peppermint Essential Oil is Made: The steam distillation of the fresh flowering tops of the peppermint plants is ideally removed slightly before the plants bloom and produce the oil.
