Peppermint is classified as a carminative herb for its use as a general digestive aid. It is also used for its breath freshening properties in toothpastes and mouthwashes, and is known to work wonders as a quick pick-me-up; perfect for hot, sweaty “summer skin.” Peppermint is described as a strong, herbaceous minty top-middle note with balsamic-sweet undertones. Cooling and hot, this energizing and stimulating essential oil helps memory and concentration and alleviates exhaustion, emotional/mental and physical fatigue, indecision, mental strain, shyness, sinuses and tension headaches

The active constituents of peppermint include: menthol, terpenes, caffeic acid and flavonoids.
