Learn More About Peppermint

Pep up digestive fire with peppermint.

Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) is a cooling and uplifting herb, with an unmistakably invigorating aroma that can be credited to its high essential oil content. In fact, one of peppermint’s active compounds is menthol, the source of its telltale frosty tingle. Menthol is classified by herbalists as a carminative, a volatile compound that helps to slow smooth muscle contractions. As we ingest menthol, the muscles of the digestive tract relax, quelling nausea, relieving bloating and easing occasional indigestion.* With its pleasant flavor and knack for supporting the digestive tract, it is an excellent choice for everyday enjoyment.* It's no wonder peppermint has found its way into after-meal treats, in the form of peppermint candy and digestif liqueurs worldwide. 


History

Dried mint leaves have been found in ancient Egyptian pyramids, and mint was so greatly valued in Biblical times that it is referenced in the New Testament as a payment for taxes. In Greek mythology, the water nymph Minthe was turned into a mint plant after a tryst with the god Pluto (an explanation for many mint varietals’ preference for moist soils). 

In the first century AD, the Roman naturalist Pliny noted that the Greeks and Romans used mint to flavor sauces and wine, and it is referenced in a west Nordic pharmacopoeia fragment of the 13th century. But it wasn’t until the 1700s that the peppermint we know today began to be commercially cultivated as a medicinal plant. It quickly spread from England to Western Europe and around the world, noted for its fresh flavor and its ability to calm cranky digestive systems.

Today, it’s a common sight throughout grocery store shelves from the produce section to the dental hygiene aisle. As herbalists, we love it as an invigorating herbal tea or in an herbal alcohol-based tincture to support bellies.
