The oil and its principal aroma-compound menthol have cooling and gastro-stimulant properties, for which it is used in pharmaceuticals, food flavour, confectionery, cosmetics, beverages and related industries. In India, it is grown over around 50,000 ha land. The area has grown enormously during the last 3 years in Tarai districts of Uttar Pradesh, and parts of Punjab and Haryana. India has emerged as a large exporter of its oil and menthol to world market, particularly to the USA.

Japanese mint is a vigorously growing branched, hardy perennial, attaining up to I m height in rich fertile lands. The herb is covered with soft tomentum all over and bears broadly ovate leaves over terete, violet tinged quadrangular stem. It gives out long, narrow, axillary flowering spikes profusely, containing lilac flowers. Being of hybrid origin, it rarely sets seed.
