Our peppermint grows in the northern 'mint' regions of India. The oil is produced by stea distilling dried leaves and flowers.
Peppermint oil is one of the most versatile essential oils, and I love it for its minty and refreshing aroma.
Did you know that it takes about 77 kilos of leaves to make 1 kilo of oil?
