FIELD MINTMentha arvensis (Lamiacee)
Originally from Europe and certain parts of Asia (China, Japan), field Mint now grows spontaneously all over North America.
It is a fragile herbaceous plant that grows to a height of sixty centimetres, with lanceolate leaves and flowers bunched in terminal sprigs.
Most field mint oil is produced in India, China and South America.
The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the whole plant while in flower, and is typically dementholized to avoid issues such as solidification. It is a transparent, near-colourless liquid with a penetrating, minty, grassy scent, similar to Peppermint. It combines well with Benzoin absolute oil and the essential oils of Buchu, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Marjoram, Rosemary and other Mint oils.
