Product Description

Easy to grow herb with many culinary, medicinal, and garden uses...

Perennial. Easy to grow just about anywhere, but will do best in partial shade and a healthy garden soil with regular water. Peppermint is a cross between watermint and spearmint. Unlike spearmint, it is very high in menthol, and so is used for a whole host of cooling, soothing functions. It has a sharper flavor than spearmint, and is used to flavor candies, mints, and lozenges. Due to it's cooling properties, it can ease a sore throat and sore muscles. It is also used as a decongestant. I like to make a decoction to soothe sunburn, and a tea to sip and breathe in the steam when I have a cold. Like other mints, it can be invasive, but bees love it, so maybe you can plant it in a spot where it can go feral and keep the bees happy.

Mint tea has long been used as a refreshing drink that's also said to relieve indigestion, alleviate motion and morning sickness, calm nerves, induce sleep, and reduce the effects of heat prostration. When planted as a companion to cabbage � or strewn between any vegetables of the genus Brassica, peppermint helps deter the white cabbage butterfly.
