About the Plant:

Cornmint is a delicate perennial mint plant, often used in the East as Peppermint. It grows lilac-colored flowers that appear in clusters among the upper leaves. The essential oil of Cornmint contains so much menthol that it becomes solid at below room temperature unless some of the menthols is removed. Since Peppermint does not have to undergo this process and has a more pleasant aroma, it is usually preferred in aromatherapy over Cornmint, except in the case of children.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

The bittersweet, slightly spicy mint aroma of Cornmint is similar to Peppermint. In Asia, Cornmint is used therapeutically in the same way Peppermint is used. Cornmint is preferred for treating children because it is gentler than Peppermint.

Peppermint and Cornmint both help in freeing the skin of acne and other conditions, improve circulation, soothe sore muscles, benefit respiration, tone digestion, help the immune system fight off colds, and they have a wonderful reviving effect on the nervous system.

“The oil helps people become clear-headed and refreshes spirits. Like Lemon, Lemongrass, Basil, and Rosemary, Mint specifically stimulates the central hippocampus of the brain. It may be beneficial for people who are unable to concentrate or who have mental fatigue and memory lapses. This is an ideal oil to use in an aroma lamp in the office, in conference rooms, or in any situation in which a clean, uncluttered atmosphere is desired.” Complete Aromatherapy Handbook, Fischer-Rizzi
