Caption: Oil glands. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the surface of a corolla petal from the peppermint plant (Mentha piperita), showing oil (yellow) above its oil glands. The tall grey structures are part of the petal. The oil produced by the glands is widely used in industry in the manufacture of perfumes and alcoholic drinks. The plant is also used as a culinary herb, as a flavouring in sweet and savoury dishes alike, and as a herbal remedy to aid digestion, ease coughing and prevent convulsions. It is also a powerful antiseptic and insecticide. Magnification: x210 at 5x7cm size. x525 at 5x7 inch size.
