mint plants - super easy to grow & full of health benefits too - Mints (Mentha spp.) can be used as both a ground cover and attractant for bees. They also are excellent for flavoring foods, teas, and for plant based medicines. Dill (Anethum graveolens), caraway (Carum carvi), parsley (Petroselinum crispum), and fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) all serve as host plants for butterflies and beneficial insects, and as food for humans. All of them will self-sow if allowed to set seed.
Peppermint essential oil is good for headaches, stomach aches, muscle and join pain and soooo many more things!
Will this intimidate me out of planting an herb garden?
all abouts growing herbs
herbalmedicinewoman: Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Common names: brandy mint, balm mint, curled mint, lamb mint. Part used: Leaves and oil. Medical properties: Aromatic, stimulant, stomachic, carminative, rebefacient. Description and uses: This is one of the oldest house hold remedies and should be in every garden as it grows very prolifically. Excellent remedy for chills, colic, fevers, dizziness, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, cholera, heart trouble, palpitation of the heart, influenza, la grippe, and hysteria. Applied externally, it is good for rheumatism, nueralgia, and headache. Peppermint enemas are excellent for cholera and colon problems. It is especially useful for convulsions and spams in infants. Peppermint is a general stimulant. A strong cup of peppermint tea will act more powerfully on the the system than any liquor stimulant, quickly diffusing itself through the system and bringing back to the body, its natural warmth and glow without the usual tendency to relapse. It is good in cases of sudden fainting or dizziness with extreme coldness and pale countenance. Useful for gripping pains caused by eating unripe fruit or irritating food. Do no drink coffee and tea, which is harmful, Coffee weakens heart muscles. Peppermint tea is delicious and strengthens your heart muscles.Coffee hinders digestion, is a cause of constipation and poisons the body. Peppermint tea cleanses and strengthens the entire body. Give it a fair trial and see how much better you feel when you leave off coffee and tea and drink peppermint tea. Instead of using aspirin or some other harmful drug for headaches, a a cup of peppermint tea as string as you like it, lie down for a little while, and see what a good effect it has on you. If need be, drink 2 or 3 cups, so that enough gets into the system to help you. You will not be disappointed. It strengthens the nerves, instead of weakening them as aspirin and other drugs do. If the tea is not at hand, take some of the leaves and chew them up until you can swallow the easily. This will start your food digesting and assist the entire body in doing its work more normally. use one ounce of the herb in a pint of boiling water and sweeten with some honey if desired. Take in doses of one wine glassful. You may also use 5 to 15 drops of the liquid extract in a cup of water. -source:Back to Eden by Jethro kloss, the revised and Expanded Second Edition
