Peppermint is a well-known perennial plant with dark green leaves and light lavender flowers. This popular herb has been used for thousands of years for culinary, fragrance and medicinal purposes, and its natural oil is one of the most versatile botanical oils in the world. It is rich in menthol– a well-studied compound for its digestive health, relaxing and cooling effects.
Sibelius’ Black Mitcham Peppermint oil derives from an heirloom variety of mint grown in England. It is produced by steam distillation of the plant’s leaves and aged in barrels for 2 years. This allows its flavour and scent to mellow, making it cooler & more intense than other varieties.
