Where Does Peppermint Essential Oil Come From?
Peppermint essential oil is distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the plant. There are nearly two dozen species of mint and hundreds of varieties that grow natively in Asia, Africa, Australia, and North America. Peppermint is a cross of watermint and the milder-flavored spearmint, and was first described by Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in the 18th Century.
Different climates and soils impact the chemical profile of the peppermint plant. The Pacific Northwest is an ideal climate for growing peppermint because of the high and consistent amounts of rainfall each year. This contributes to a high menthol content, which gives peppermint its minty aroma and flavor.
Some of the northern states in India have climates similarly suited for optimal mint cultivation. By sourcing some of our Peppermint in India, we are able to support smallholder farmers there.
