Fresh or dried peppermint leaves are often used alone or with other herbs in herbal teas (tisanes, infusions).
Menthol activates cold-sensitive TRPM8 receptors in the skin and mucosal tissues, and is the primary source of the cooling sensation that follows the topical application of peppermint oil.
