Mint was prized in Japan and China for centuries and has even been found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 1,000 BC. The Egyptians used this herb to flavour food and wine. In the 17th century Culpeper recorded that Peppermint was the herb most useful for 'complaints of the stomach, such as wind and vomiting, for which there are few remedies or greater efficiency'.
The leaves of Peppermint are broader and shorter with larger spikes of flower which are purple. Peppermint is a classic British herb, now grown throughout the world. The essential oil is nearly one third menthol, which is one of the reasons it is used to invigorate and clear the head. The oil is distilled from the whole of the partially dried plant.
