santahat Peppermint

Peppermint, that red and white treat is not only yummy at Christmas, but also comes with a bit of health benefits.

The mints have a long history, dating back to Greek mythology.

Dried peppermint leaves have been found in Egyptian pyramids
dating back to 1,000 BC

Mints are typically used the following:

Relieves symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome
Inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungus
Relieves the symptoms of allergies and asthma
Sooths the digestive tract
Peppermint tea is also great for upset stomach.
You can chew a few leaves of fresh mint , make a tea from the leaves
Alternatively, purchase mint tea bags. Steep in boiling water 3 or 4 minutes sweeten if desired.
