Peppermint is one of the world’s most popular kinds of mint. Like all mint plants, it features sturdy vine-like stems and serrated leaves. The leaves also contain menthol, which causes a distinctive cooling sensation on the skin and palate. For this reason, mint has become popular in anything from candies, ice creams, and liquors to breath mints, toothpastes, and gum. Peppermint has long been used in traditional medicine for treating minor pains and stomach issues. Though it was originally described as a distinct species in 1753, scientists have since agreed that it is actually a hybrid between watermint and spearmint.
