I love herbs so much. It’s amazing how the earth was created with everything we needed to live a good, long and healthy life.
One of the things God blessed the earth with is my favored Peppermint.
Did you know that a type of peppermint has been found in Egyptian tombs dating from 1000 BC. It has been used for centuries for indigestion, colic, nausea, diarrhea, sore throat, toothaches, cramps, flatulence, acne, scabies, halitosis, neuralgia, fevers and ringworm; both as a tea and in aromatherapy treatments.
Peppermint’s medicinal properties include: analgesic, anti-inflamatory, antiseptic, antimicrobial, febrifuge, antiviral, antispasmodic.
We have used peppermint essential oil in our shampoo for many years to help with dry scalp and flakes. The essential oil makes a lovely addition to an essential oil diffuser and mixes well with lavender, rosemary, lemon, eucalyptus and spearmint. The tea settles the most upset of tummies and can effectively reduce fever along with other fever reducing herbs.

As with all things I recommend you use organic peppermint in all its forms. You can buy quality organic essential oil at your local health food store in addition to the fresh or dried herb for use in teas and herbal baths.
If you need a pure and aromatic organic dried peppermint in loose tea form please contact me for pricing. I have shipped several teas and my signature tea blends and herbal baths all over the world.
