Piperita Peppermint Oil, an essential oil referred to by the botanical name Mentha piperita, is a hybrid plant between water mint and spearmint. This particular peppermint oil is steam distilled from the leaves just before flowering which yields 0.1-1.0% of piperita peppermint oil. It has a fresh and sharp menthol aroma that is widely used in the food, flavoring and cosmetic industries. Like many essential oils, peppermint oil is commonly used in aromatherapy for its appealing scent and therapeutic properties. Pure essential oils such as peppermint oil are highly concentrated and should be handled with care.
