Peppermint Leaf - Dried Herb Tea 50g

Peppermint leaf

Mentha x piperita (fol.)
Family: Lamiaceae
Traditionally used as an infusion to reduce gastric/ digestive discomfort as it relaxes smooth muscles. This ability to relax muscles can also be beneficial for menstrual cramps and any other muscle cramp such as those experienced with tension headaches. (yet whilst the tea is good for this the oil massaged into the temples and base of skull  is potentially better). The menthol (inhaled ) in a steam, drunk in tea or released by chewing fresh leaves can assist in clearing sinuses, increasing blood flow locally and having a a cooling and soothing effect to sinus inflammation and headaches. The leaves have an antimicrobial component that can help freshen breath and and help to reduce infection and inflammation.
