Peppermint is a cooling herb – thanks to its menthol content – with a refreshing taste that makes a lovely addition to a glass of cold water. You can tell the difference between this mint and other mints by the dark purple stem it has and the narrower, pointed appearance of its leaves.
While it was also used in ancient Rome as a flavouring for various dishes, the first medicinal use of peppermint was in ancient Egypt. Some of the remaining medical texts indicate that peppermint was well known for its ability to soothe an upset stomach. It was also known in Greece as an herb to help stimulate appetite.
The aroma of this herb helps it to provide mental clarity, safety, and protection. Additionally, it helps to shake up and dispel negative energetic patterns or vibrations.
A popular herb, you will often see peppermint used for:
- Relieve gastrointestinal upset such as indigestion, colic, and flatulence.
- Providing clarity and relief for migraine headaches.
- To help with sore throats and other respiratory ailments.
- To help support and improve concentration.
