Health Benefits: Drinking mint tea will help to combat most kinds of stomach problems, travel sickness and indigestion. Infusing the leaves can help to alleviate chesty or nasal problems. Reduces stress levels and headache.
Cooking: Can be added to both sweet and savoury dishes including curries and meat marinades. Using a small handful of chopped mint adds colour and flavour to any salad, not to mention desserts (chocolate mints and ice cream).
At Home: Use a few drops of mint essential oil as a natural deodoriser to get your home smelling fresh. This can equally work on your carpets by scattering dried mint leaves with baking soda and leave for a hour before hoovering.
Garden: Use a few drops of essential oil in a spray bottle with water to spray around the home to combat swarms of summer flies, moths, ants and midges. Placing a rag soaked in peppermint oil near an area will help to warn off mice.
