About: Peppermint is actually a hybrid in the mint family – a cross between spearmint and watermint. It is used to flavor a variety of foods, beverages, and candies. In aromatherapy, it is especially useful for getting rid of a tension headache by simply smelling, in deep breaths, the essential oil.
Safety Warnings: avoid during pregnancy or a history of high blood pressure. Dilute well if used on skin.
