Description
Japanese peppermint has the highest menthol content amongst all mint varieties, usually double that of Mentha Piperita, often resulting in crystals forming directly on the leaf itself. Peppermint, like lavender, is soothing in small amounts and strongly stimulating in larger amounts.

Therapeutic Properties
Tonic, cytophylactic, anti-infective, antiseptic, decongestant, antibiotic, antifungal, antidepressant, anti-toxic, aphrodisiac, astringent, calmative, nervine, anti-inflammatory to the nerves and the prostate

Common Uses
The high menthol content of Mentha Arvensis makes it strong at relieving pain when applied on the skin for rashes, headaches, cramps, sunburns, inflamed joints and athritis. Can also be mixed with water as a mouthwash. Inhale via nose to clear nasal congestion or to boost focus and concentration at work. Dr. Dembar of the University of Cincinnati discovered in a research study that inhaling peppermint oil increased the mental accuracy of the students tested by up to 28%.
Additionally, peppermint can be used as a deterrent against unwanted rodents and insects.

Main Constituents
The essential oil of peppermint (up to 2.5% in the dried leaves) is mostly made up from menthol (ca. 50%), menthone (10 to 30%), menthyl esters (up to 10%) and further monoterpene derivatives (pulegone, piperitone, menthofurane). Traces of jasmone (0.1%) improve the oil’s quality remarkably.

Menthol and menthyl acetate are responsible for the pungent and refreshing odour; they are mostly found in older leaves and are preferentially formed during long daily sunlight periods. On the other hand, the ketones menthone and pulegone (and menthofurane) have a less delightful fragrance; they appear to higher fraction in young leaves and their formation is preferred during short days.

The oil of Japanese peppermint​ is often attributed with an incredible wealth of useful medical properties; it has also never failed to help in a number of different inconvenient conditions like nausea, mild stomach upset or cold.
