Dried peppermint leaves were discovered in pyramids that date back to 1000 BCE. Its use was recorded in the 13th century Icelandic Pharmacopoeias, but it wasn't until the middle of the 18th century that it began to be cultivated for its medicinal properties. Peppermint is a hybrid of water mint and spearmint. It is indigenous to Europe and the Middle East. Over the ages, peppermint has been used for indigestion, nausea, infections, respiratory infections, and pain.
