Botanical Name

Mentha arvensis / L. (var. piperascens Malinvaud)

Benefits and Qualities

Very much like peppermint, arvensis mint essential oil is a tonic for the organism to be used with care, because it is so powerful. It is, for example, not advised for the bath: It heats first before producing a sensation of cold. On the other hand, for all therapeutic uses relative to the stimulation and reconstitution of vital energies, arvensis mint remains a truly essential oil. Synergies: lemon, ginger, black pepper, fennel, citronella, rosemary.


Essential oil obtained by steam extraction of the flowery heads of mentha arvensis L. var piperascens Malinvaud. The essential oil extracted is then partially de-mentholated by freezing.

The Plant

Arvensis mint, or field mint, is one among five species of authentic mints, species which will spontaneously interbreed if they grow in proximity to each other. It is principally arvensis mint from which menthol is extracted, because it contains a great deal. This species is more actively cultivated and exploited in India, China, and Vietnam.
