Let's dive a little deeper...

Peppermint extract is a mixture of peppermint essential oils and alcohol. Peppermint oil is quite strong, so you need to dilute it for most uses. The oil is about four times as strong as the extract. Peppermint oil has non-culinary applications, such as aromatherapy, so not all oils sold are edible. It has a strong sweetish odour and a warm pungent taste with a cooling aftertaste. The leaves are typically used fresh as a culinary herb, and the flowers are dried and used to flavour candy, desserts, beverages, salads, and other foods. Its essential oil is also widely used as a flavouring.

Peppermint extract, derived from the peppermint plant (Mentha × piperita), offers a variety of health benefits:

Digestive Aid: Peppermint extract is known for its ability to soothe digestive issues. It can help alleviate symptoms of indigestion, bloating, and gas by relaxing the muscles in the gastrointestinal tract.

Relief from Nausea: Peppermint has anti-nausea properties and may relieve nausea and motion sickness. Inhaling the aroma of peppermint or consuming peppermint tea may be beneficial.

Headache Relief: Peppermint's menthol content has a cooling effect and may help relieve tension headaches and migraines. Applying diluted peppermint oil to the temples may offer relief.

Respiratory Health: The menthol in peppermint has decongestant properties, making it useful for relieving nasal congestion and promoting easier breathing. Peppermint tea or inhaling steam with peppermint oil can be beneficial.

Antimicrobial Properties: Peppermint has antimicrobial properties that may help fight certain bacteria and viruses. It can be included in oral hygiene routines or used in aromatherapy to support respiratory health.

Pain Relief: Peppermint extract, particularly when applied topically or in the form of peppermint oil, may have analgesic (pain-relieving) effects. It's often used to alleviate muscle aches and pains.

Mood Enhancement: The aroma of peppermint is invigorating and may help improve mood and concentration. It's often used in aromatherapy to boost alertness and mental clarity.

Antioxidant Properties: Peppermint contains antioxidants that can help neutralize free radicals in the body, potentially contributing to overall health and well-being.

It's important to note that while peppermint extract can offer health benefits, it should be used in moderation, and individuals with certain medical conditions or allergies should consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating it into their routine. Additionally, pure peppermint extract is highly concentrated, so it's typically used in small quantities for flavoring in culinary applications.
