Peppermint (Menta piperita) has been used for tens of thousands of years by ancient cultures and continues to be the highest used aromatic oil today. It is a master herb for soothing the gastrointestinal system. Many people use it to alleviate their headaches and it is one of the most popular herbal teas available.
Peppermint is wonderful to add to jugs of water to give it a lovely taste and to assist with digestion.
In Morocco the tea of choice is peppermint tea and it is available everywhere. Literally a handful of fresh peppermint with hot water poured over it. Then add honey or sugar to taste. It is so warming and wonderful for the gut.
