The mints are grown for the essential oils that they produce in specialized glands on the leaves and stems. This oil is readily recovered by steam distillation of the harvested hay. Peppermint and spearmint oils are widely used to flavor chewing gum, candy, pharmaceuticals, toothpaste and other oral hygiene products. More than 30% of the mint oil produced in the U.S. is exported to Europe and other countries around the world.
