Peppermint is a cross between watermint and spearmint and is native to Europe.

Peppermint essential oil is extracted from the whole plant above ground just before flowering by steam distillation from the fresh or partly dried plant.
Peppermint oil is very helpful as an aid for digestion. Put a few drops of peppermint oil in a glass of water and drink it after a meal to receive it's beneficial digestive properties. It is carminative and therefore helps in removing excess gas. Peppermint oil is also a good tonic for those who have a low appetite, and it helps treating motion sickness, nausea and upset stomachs. It is reported that peppermint oil, when combined with caraway oil can be used for treating heartburn.  A number of studies have also shown it to be a great reliever of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Peppermint oil, due to its antiseptic properties, is very useful in dental care. It also eliminates bad breath and helps teeth and gums fight off hazardous germs. It is also been shown to be useful in the treatment of toothaches. At times, the inhalation of peppermint oil vapor can be anti-inflammatory and pain relieving.
When topically applied, Peppermint oil can reduce the chances of fungal nail infection. Peppermint oil is very useful for hair care as it gives a cooling effect to the head, while removing dandruff and lice. 
Peppermint oil can be used externally in order to provide relief from pain. It is also cooling in nature and is subsequently used to help reduce fever. It is frequently called a “refrigerant”, meaning that it can provide an intensely cold sensation to any affected area. In case of injury, wound, or healing process, topically apply peppermint oil to the area to reduce swelling, relieve pain, and eliminate the chances of inflammation.The stimulating effects of peppermint oil have been shown to increase blood circulation.
Peppermint oil is a good home remedy for nausea and headaches. To quickly alleviate the pain of a headache, simply apply peppermint oil in a diluted form directly on the forehead. Inhaling peppermint oil can eliminate the effects of nausea and motion sickness, simply because of its relaxing and soothing effects. Its cooling and anti-inflammatory properties are part of the reason why it is so successful at relieving headache symptoms, and in some cases can reduce the pain of migraines  within 15 minutes of topical application.
Menthol, which is abundantly present in peppermint oil, helps to clear the respiratory tract. It is also an effective expectorant and therefore provides instantaneous, though temporary, relief for numerous respiratory problems including nasal congestion, sinusitis, asthma, bronchitis, cold and cough. As a result, it is used in numerous cold rubs and balms. When these cold rubs are applied to the chest, they can quickly remove nasal and respiratory congestion.
Blending: Peppermint blends well with eucalyptus, rosemary, lemon, and marjoram essential oils.
