Mint:Piperita officinalis-Peppermint: Mentha spicata-Common Mint or Spearmint
Even non gardeners would be familiar with the mint herb and many would have imbibed peppermint tea, and perhaps even eaten after dinner mints.
But which mint helps you sleep and which mint helps with a sore stomach?
Let’s find out
I'm talking with was Simone Jefferies, naturopath and herbalist of www.simonejeffriesnaturopath.com.au
A herb that grows well where it is a bit damp and shady.
Simone says, "mint has a sense of humour, because in Simone's garden, it pops up almost anywhere, including cracks in the pavement. "
You can easily buy peppermint plants as well as the many other different varieties of mint.
There are many types of mint: eau de cologne mint, mojito mint, ginger mint, and banana mint.
Banana mint sounded quite delicious and may be an ideal addition to ice cold water on a warm summer’s day.
Benefits of Mint
Peppermint Mint is a calming and soothing herb that has been used for thousands of years to aid with upset stomach or indigestion.
Mint is a mild sedative and can be used just before going to sleep as a calmative.
Cooking with Mint
Mint Sauce-handful of mint, add some sugar, vinegar and boiling water.
Add to steamed peas.
Tabbouleh: 1/3 mint; 2/3 parsley, cracked wheat, spring onions, cucumber (if desired.)
