PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in the dōTERRA Peppermint oil - helps to discern Peppermint oil quality. Peppermint Oil has been traditionally used in aromatherapy to reduce cough, support mental function and help relieve the symptoms of mild tension or headache. Peppermint is a popular favourite among dōTERRA essential oils.
