Probably peppermint: flavored. Wound not worry but would stop ingesting any peppermint. Please read this article: http://www.livestrong.com/article/158249-peppermint-oil-pregnancy.BreastCancer.org recommends against rubbing peppermint oil on your skin if you are pregnant. " "Medline Plus recommends avoiding any form of peppermint oil if you are pregnant."
