Excerpts from Nutritional Herbology

The popularity of Peppermint Leaf Tea Bags are based on peppermint's volatile oil, which contains an abundance of menthol, a time-honored and clinically proven aid to digestion. Menthol is also a mild antispasmodic which makes it useful for relieving menstrual cramps and nausea. It is also a mild vasodilator, creating a warm or flushed feeling by stimulating circulation.

Peppermint oil is used in the food industry for flavoring. The herb and oil is used in the culinary arts because of its stimulating, stomachic and carminative properties. In medicine, peppermint has been useful as an antispasmodic, expectorant and irritant. It is used in alleviating the symptoms of colds, flu, and general fevers, nervous disorders, flatulent colic, rheumatism, as a local anesthetic and to cover the taste or quality of the nauseating or griping effects of other medicines.

Peppermint Leaf Tea aromatic compounds increase the production of digestive fluids, relieve muscle spasms, increase blood circulation, promote sweating and are antiseptic. It also contains astringent compounds which shrink inflamed tissues.

  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Niacin
  • Phosphorus

  • Excerpts from Practical Herbalism

    The mints are amongst the oldest and most reliable of herbal remedies, especially for issues relating to digestion. Culpeper quotes an even more ancient herbal authority, Simeon Sethi, and says, “It helps a cold liver, strengthens the belly, causes digestion, stays vomit, and hiccough. It is good against the gnawing of the heart, provokes the appetite, takes away obstructions of the liver, and stirs up bodily lust.” Apart from that last commendation, most modern herbals recite virtually the same litany. Ellingwood considered it specific for flatulent colic, gastrodynia, nausea, vomiting, spasmodic pain in the bowels, hiccups, palpitation from indigestion, griping, irritability of the stomach, diarrhea with abdominal pain, and nervous headache. In addition, he recommends it for the following pathologies: fevers associated with nausea and vomiting, local pain relief in rheumatism (as the oil), symptomatic relief of asthma and chronic bronchitis, toothache, acute indigestion, painful gonorrhea, and pruritis ani. The essential oil, distilled from the fresh cut plant, has enjoyed a wide range of medicinal and culinary uses since the 18th century, and is one of the few that are safe to take internally or apply to the skin undiluted.

    Special Considerations:

    Like ginger and capsicum, peppermint is a helpful herb “catalyst” or activator; drinking a cup of Peppermint tea before taking other herbs opens the circulation, and potentiates their action. It also helps make the disagreeable taste of many herbal formulas a little more palatable.

    Notes:

    A few sprigs of peppermint placed in picnic baskets or food cabinets makes an effective deterrent to ants.


    From Our Reading and/or Experience...

    • We use Peppermint more than any other herb in our teas. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies. It can easily be ground up, and used in capsules.
    • Peppermint is a food. Thus, we keep it in the kitchen as all other food ingredients. We add it to many dishes (salads, meat dishes, stir fry, vegetables, etc.) to enhance the flavor and add nutritional value to our foods. Most of the times, we add it after the dish is prepared.
    • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
    • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
    • As is the case with most herbs, Peppermint should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.

    Amazing
    by Alexa on Jan 3, 2014

    I adore this tea. I love how potent it is (I can make 3 cups of strong peppermint tea with one bag.) It has helped my anxiety more than I can say, because it helps me stay calm and relaxed throughout the day.

    Our family enjoys this tea the most!

    I bought the Peppermint Tea and Spearmint Tea to treat my PCOS (lower androgen levels), anxiety, and to rest better in general. I had been using an over the counter brand blend of the two. This tea is AMAZING! The taste, the effects, even after one cup of the two blended together I woke up feeling amazing today.

    I will most definitely keep ordering. I cannot wait to expand my herb knowledge and stash!

    The Peppermint Leaf Tea Bag and Spearmint Tea Bags are they organic herbs?

    In your video of tea preparation, you mentioned that the tea leaves must be soft, If I order the Organic Bulk Cut Peppermint Tea, would it be considered soft leaves? Or are the soft leaves only in the prepared tea bags?

    Can Licorice Root be sprinkled on food and directly in mouth as a snack?

    Thank you for your wonderful career choice and sharing.

      The tea in the tea bags is wild crafted. All leaves and herbs are known as soft and berries and roots would be hard. For the licorice root cut I would just use it in teas because it might be hard on the stomach to just eat the root but hey I would say to research it and find out for yourself because this is just my opinion! Have a great day!

    I wake up refreshed!
