Mint - Peppermint
Peppermint is an ancient heirloom that dates back to as early as 1500 B.C. The herb is thought to have originated from North Africa and the Mediterranean, introduced as a natural hybrid cross, between both spearmint and water mint. Its strong scented leaves are crushed and used to flavour chewing gum, breath mints and teas. They are also used in all sorts of shampoos, conditioners, toothpastes and skincare products as well. The plants grow to a mature height of roughly 60cm tall.
Peppermint is a perennial favourite for many people, it has high menthol content and its refreshing taste is uplifting and cleansing. It is popular for infusions and is a favourite among herbal tea drinkers and is one of the easiest herbs to grow yourself.
