Product Abstract: Mentha piperita is a perennial hybrid that proliferates by spreading its underground rhizomes, which can grow anywhere. Peppermint's name has its roots in Greek mythology; the story goes that, when Hades, God of the Dead, pursued the beautiful nymph Minthe, Hades' wife Persephone became jealous and turned Minthe into a small and insignificant plant on which to be trampled. Pluto could not undo the transformation but ensured that Minthe would always be loved for her fragrant aroma. Peppermint is used as a fragrance agent in soaps, candles and toiletries.

If this happens, place the bottle in a hot water “bath,” and change the water frequently to ensure that the temperature remains hot. Repeat this step until the oil returns to its liquid state, then gently agitate the bottle before use.
