Learning with LaRee

Peppermint oil stimulates the mind, increasing the ability to focus. When inhaled, it restores the sense of taste by stimulating the trigeminal nerve. Oddly, inhaling peppermint oil can also curb the appetite. Peppermint is like a rush of fresh energy into the system. It allows us to relax instead of letting anxiety build up in our body or mind. Peppermint oil is specific for people who move between highs and lows. Peppermint is renowned for action on the digestive system and for use in bowel disorders.

Which Peppermint should I choose?

Peppermint Piperita is the most common and popular type of Peppermint. It is distilled from Mentha piperita which is true peppermint. Our newest Peppermint is Peppermint Black Mitcham.  Black Mitcham is a Mentha piperita just like Peppermint Piperita.  The difference is Black Mitcham is an heirloom variety and is only harvested once per year to keep the integrity of the Peppermint to its highest standards. It has a delicious chocolatey undertone and is only slightly more expensive. Peppermint Corn Mint is distilled from Mentha arvensis which is corn mint. Peppermint Corn Mint contains more menthol than Peppermint Piperita giving it a sweeter stronger aroma. Piperita is considered to be the more therapeutic asCorn Mint often has some of the menthol extracted to make menthol crystals. Corn Mint is still very therapeutic, I especially like it for the respiratory system. Corn Mint smells more like the Christmas candy cane.
