|My little herb garden. Stevia, lemon verbena, lemon balm and mint.|
Mint is rich is Vitamin A and Vitamin C as well as containing a small amount of Vitamin B2.
- Aids digestion and can ease an upset tummy
- Here's an obvious one ~ discourages, or covers up, bad breath.
- Eases morning sickness. I remember mint chocolate chip ice cream being one of my favorite "cures" for morning sickness when I was pregnant with my daughter. Unfortunately, when I was pregnant with my son, I only found Pringles to give me temporary relief from morning sickness.
- Stress reducer. A cup of tea, with the warm scent of mint, can be so relaxing.
- Reduce migraines with a cup of mint tea (goes along with the stress reducing properties of mint).
- Antioxidant which may prevent cancer.
- Helps alleviate nasal allergies.
- Relieves congestion and head colds.
I've found the easiest way to dry herbs is on a hanger. I secure a rubber band around the hanger. I then wrap the rubber band around a few sprigs of herbs.
I added a few fresh sprigs of mint to a jar of water to make a little sun tea. Yum.
Or use your fresh mint in a tabouleh salad! Recipe HERE.
