We hardly go a day in our house without using our doTERRA peppermint essential oil! 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 doTERRA’s peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the best quality peppermint from other products. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, peppermint also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function.* Peppermint essential oil continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among doTERRA essential oils.
