Peppermint is a type of hybrid mint, bred through a combination of spearmint and watermint. Scientifically known as Mentha x Piperita, this plant is found throughout the world. Peppermint grows particularly well in moist and shady areas. It has a spicy refreshing flavor that makes it a popular ingredient in many different foods, candies, and desserts, among others. The leaves of this plant are the primary parts that are used, due to the presence of the essential oil, which contains high levels of menthone, menthol, limonene, and various other acids, compounds, and antioxidants. While many people use the terms mint and peppermint interchangeably, mint may refer to different types of mint, whereas the latter is a specific variety. While the plant is native to Europe and the Middle East, it is now considered an invasive species in many other parts of the world, including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and the Galapagos Islands, among others. These aromatic plants prefer to grow in moist and damp areas and grows by putting out runners, rather than reproducing via seed dispersal.
