Outside therapeutic practices, peppermint essential oil, is commonly used as a flavoring for food and drinks. It’s also a regular ingredient in soaps and cosmetics.
It has a long tradition of medicinal use, with archaeological evidence placing its use at least as far back as ten thousand years ago. Unlike several other herbs and essential oils, whose benefits mostly result from speculations, assumptions and traditional practices, the numerous therapeutic properties of peppermint oil have been vastly studied and proven by the scientific community. Historically, peppermint is one of the earliest used herbs in medicine. Records trace its use to ancient Egyptian, Chinese and Japanese civilizations where it was essential in the treatment of digestion problems. In the 18th century, the plant’s leaves became widely popular in Europe as a folk remedy for respiratory infections, nausea, vomiting, morning sickness, and menstrual disorders.
