A hybrid between two different species of mint (water mint and spearmint), peppermint is natural to Europe and the middle east, though now is found across the world. Apart from its distinctive, fresh, and invigorating scent, peppermint oil has been used for its benefits to the skin, digestive system, relief of muscle pain, and antimicrobial properties.
