Mint-Peppermint

Mentha × piperita

Peppermint is a traditional herb garden favorite. Peppermint plants are a delicious culinary herb with a fragrance that is considered to be one of the best memory triggers - one sniff of the refreshing bouquet of this aromatic herb appears to back this up, as it conjures up memories of candy canes!

People are probably most familiar with its commercial uses, but it can also be easily grown and put to a variety of uses. For years, peppermint has been used to treat headaches, muscle cramps, and chronic indigestion. Menthol, the extracted essential oil, is found in the plant's leaves and flowers and is used in lotions, mouthwashes, soaps, and candies for its calming properties.
