Probably the best-known mint is peppermint. It appears to be a spontaneous hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first discovered in England in 1696. Menthol, the main component of mint oil, is often used as an isolated substance in a wide variety of preparations. As a refreshing and antiseptic oral care product, mint enjoys great popularity. In many dental and oral care products, especially in toothpaste and mouthwash, their scent signals freshness, purity and health.
