“The peppermint personality is difficult to forget. Some may find them brash and overpowering. They have a fearless spirit and are swift and quick thinkers. They are friendly people who are concerned about the fate of others. Whatever work they take on, they are always dynamic and get totally involved.” (Worwood V. The fragrant mind. Doubleday, Great Britain, 1995.)

Mentha piperita is a perennial herbaceous plant reaching a height up to 3 ft. It has smooth, quadrangular upright stems that branch towards the top. The plant forms an abundant carpet of oval, serrated, deep-green colored leaves. The flowers are spike shaped and usually purple in color.  Peppermint Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the plant. The color of the oil is pale yellow or pale olive. The Oil has a strong, penetrating, grassy, minty, camphor-like aroma. 

The peppermint essential oil produced in England has traditionally been the very finest available and is derived from a variety known as Mitcham (Mentha piperta forma rubescens), having been named after the area in Surrey where it was originally produced, Mitcham.
