Peppermint is one of the most popular herbal teas, well known to ease digestion and soothe the nerves. It helps expel gas from the intestines, relaxes stomach muscles, stimulates bile and digestive juices and acts as a mild anaesthetic to the stomach wall. These properties make it a valuable remedy for intestinal colic, flatulence, nausea and general digestive disturbances. It is also used for fevers, colds, and in influenza, and can also be inhaled to relieve sinus congestion. Peppermint can ease headaches, anxiety and tension.
