Peppermint is a hybrid mint, a cross between watermint and spearmint. Indigenous to Europe and the Middle East, the plant is now widely spread and cultivated in many regions of the world. It is occasionally found in the wild with its parent species.

Mint has been used since ancient times and can be eaten, used in herbal medicine and dyeing.

Mint can be used fresh and dry, but only none woody varieties will yield colour.
