'Mints have been cultivated since ancient times in China and Japan. In Egypt evidence of a type of peppermint has been found in tombs dating from 1000 BC. It has been used extensively in Eastern and Western medicine for a variety of complaints, including indigestion, nausea, sore throat, diarrhea, headaches, toothaches and cramp. It is current in the Bristish Herbal Pharmacopaeis for intestinal colic, flatulence, common cold, vomiting in pregnancy and dysmenorrhea' - an excerpt from Complete Essential Oils by Julia Lawless. This book has been discontinued.

'Peppermint is best known as a remedy for digestive upsets and has a beneficial action on the stomach, liver and intestines. It is valuable in colic, diarrhoea, indigestion, vomiting and stomach pain because of its antispasmodic action which will relieve and smooth muscles of the stomach and gut. Use it, well diluted, to massage the stomach and abdomen in a clockwise direction. Drinking peppermint tea augments the effects of massage.' - an excerpt from Aromatherapy an A - Z by Patricia Davis.

'Peppermint is widely used in confectionery and medicines. Best known as a remedy for digestive upsets. It makes a good substitute for aspirin. It is also effective against ringworm and scabies. Excellent for tired feet'. - an excerpt from Aromatherapy A Guide For Home Use. by Christine Westwood.

'The Romans introduced this oil to Britain. Peppermint was familiar to Shakespeare and Chaucer. This is one of the most widely used herbs in the western world. The Romans and the Egyptians used peppermint. It was mentioned that the Pharisees in the Bible were paid in 'tithes of mint, anise and cumin'. Peppermint tea is widely used as a tisane and can be used for morning sickness and heartburn. Cold compress can be applied to the forehead to relieve headaches. Culpepper says of peppermint 'it is food in fomentations to disperse curdled milk in the breasts.' It can be used to treat mastitis.' - an excerpt from Pregnancy Book by Jennie Supper.
