Description:

Peppermint propagates by means of its long, running roots from which are produced smooth, square stems from 1 to 3 feet in height, erect and branching. The leaves are from 1 to 2 inches long, about half as wide, pointed, and with sharply toothed margins. The plant is in flower from July to September. The small purplish blossoms are placed in circles around the stem, forming thick, blunt spikes .

Habitat:

It is a well known, common garden herb.

Cultivation & Collection:

The production of peppermint oil by distillation of the cultivated herb is an extensive industry. The wild form of the plant is not suitable for this purpose, the cultivated plant containing more and better oil.

Processing (Preparation):

Using specially constructed equipment, chamomile is cleaned from dust, foreign particles, like iron, sand, etc., and the flowers are separated from the stems. The required granulation for various purposes is prepared by specially designed cutters and mills and screens.

Quality:

The quality is checked according to the European Pharmacopoea. Additional tests are being also run on request.

Spearmint is the one used principally in flavoring iced tea and other beverages, while peppermint is more commonly used in medicines and confections.
