Peppermint Tea can also prove to be a valuable remedy for digestive problems due to its antimicrobial and antispasmodic properties. It increases the production of digestive juices and bile while simultaneously relaxing gut muscles. Conditions which may benefit from these actions include indigestion, nausea, vomiting, gas, diarrhoea, constipation, cramps, colic and irritable bowel syndrome. Digestive infections benefit from this herb and applied to the chest as a rub. It can ease respiratory infections.
Applied to the skin it can relieve pain and sensitivity. Our Organic Peppermint Tea makes a great drink for anyone suffering from a “clogged head” as a result of a cold or influenza. Peppermint’s painkilling attributes have also been used to help overcome headaches and migraines.
Peppermint Tea is amongst the most used herbal teas with its fresh flavour and cooling attributes.
Peppermint can be used in cookery, and often is, although Spearmint is the more usual choice.
