Peppermint is a fragrant herb that grows wild throughout Europe and North America. If you've ever grown peppermint in your garden, you know that it has a tendency to spread and take over. People often confuse peppermint with spearmint, a similar plant that is widely used for its refreshing flavor. But what sets peppermint apart are its unique healing ingredients—including menthol, which is used in many over-the-counter cold and cough remedies.
