Corn Mint (Mentha arvensis), also known as field mint or wild mint, is a flowering species of the mint family. Found in the UK between July and September, the Corn Mint plant also grows across the temperate parts of Europe, India, Siberia, the Himalayas, and North America.
Historically, Corn Mint leaves were drunk in tea or eaten raw to aid digestion. Ancient Greek and Chinese civilisations treated colds, fevers, and even measles with Corn Mint.
In more recent times, Corn Mint Oil was created through steam distillation of the flowering plant. The resultant oil is included in medical care products such as toothpaste and mouthwash, both for its strong minty flavour and its antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties, which can help with swollen gums, mouth ulcers, and toothache remedies.
In the Juniper Scalp Therapy Shampoo, Corn Mint Oil cleans and soothes the skin, preventing the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
