The use of peppermint dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times when it was used in sauces and wines. Medicinally, it was first distinguished when it was entered into the London Pharmacopeia in 1721. Peppermint is strong-scented, well-tolerated and cost-effective. The remedial effect of peppermint leaf is mainly due to its level of essential oils that have been proven in many clinical trials. The leaves are carefully dried so that the essential oil content is retained.
