Mentha piperita is a Lamiaceae herb native of the Mediterranean region but cultivated worldwide
for its uses in cookery and pharmaceutics . Its essential oil, peppermint EO, is rich in menthol and menthone, and possesses antibacterial, antiviral, fungicidal and anti-inflammatory properties.

The efficiency of peppermint EO against microorganisms has been evaluated in both liquid and vapour phase, concluding that the concentration of monoterpenes in the oil vapours, such as Alpha-pinene, Beta-pinene, and limonene, plays a role in inhibiting bacteria growth by inducing extensive damages to the cell membrane.
