Peppermint (Mentha piperita)

Peppermint is an aromatic herb from the mint family that has been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years. Native to Europe and Asia, it has a pleasant, minty taste with many health benefits including easing digestive symptoms and headaches.

By soothing the gastric lining, it promotes a stable and balanced gastrointestinal environment and has a cooling and calming effect on the body. It may also aid irritable bowel syndrome, skin conditions, headaches and nausea.

Other benefits include significant antimicrobial and antiviral activities, strong antioxidant and anti-tumour actions, and some anti-allergenic potential.
