Peppermint is one of my favorite herbs. I love using it in my herbal teas! Here's a little information on this fragrant herb's healing properties. Peppermint can be used internally or externally. When taking it internally it can treat morning sickness, nausea, excessive gas, and helps immensely with putting your gastric intestinal tract back on track. Externally, it can be used to ease the upper respiratory tract, to treat itching and skin burns, ringworm, and can be used to ward off bugs.
This plant can help clear the mind and can relieve headaches. It can also aid you in helping your body heal from the flu or a cold. It can also help with muscle pain especially in joints.

*Note: this tea may have a relaxing effect that may cause drowsiness as lavender helps with insomnia.
