Thanks for the interesting question.
There are hundreds of types of mint that grow all
around the world. Some mints gain their strong
flavor because they produce menthol. Mint
plants that produce the most menthol have the
strongest mint flavor, including wild mint.
Mint oil since ancient times has been used to
treat upset stomachs and to help with aches and
pains on the skin. Today, the strongest mint
flavor is found by taking the menthol put of mint
plants and concentrating it. This is how strong
minty flavors like in toothpaste and gum are made.
