Peppermint Aroma-trivia

Did you know?

  • In 1912, the first LifeSaver flavor was Peppermint.
  • In 1927, in Vienna, Austria, a candy maker by the name of Eduard Haus, III, developed a candy to conceal adult smokers’ bad breath.  In fact, the target market for the candy, labeled as a compressed breath mint, consisted of adult smokers.  The original flavor for the candy, which is still available today, was Peppermint.  When marketers extracted the first, middle, and the last letters of the German word for Peppermint, Pfefferminz, they were left with PEZ, and the name stuck.
  • Researchers at the University of Cincinnati found that workers smelling Peppermint made 25% fewer errors than those breathing plain air.
  • Sniffing a little Peppermint may step up your fitness routine and help your body work a little harder.  A survey conducted with athletes at a University in West Virginia, showed that athletes ran faster and performed more exercises when they were exposed to the scent of Peppermint.  So the next time you are exercising, try a little Peppermint.




About Aromatherapy Contessa

I love creating aromatic blends with essential oils whether for my Arlys Naturals product lines, for fun, or for customer special orders. I'm just drawn into the veil of mystery that nature has provided through these living plants, not just in their aromatic properties, but also their natural healing properties.
