Common Uses 


Myth: Sweet smelling peppermint is less therapeutic than other mint.  If this were true Indian peppermint would be therapeutically superior to USA mint.  There is no scientific data to support the notion that herbal grassier mints have a better aromatherapy value. There are however, studies that suggest if an oil doesn’t have a pleasant aroma the therapy results will be diminished because of psychological factors, even if the spec is correct.
