Nothing like starting off the week with two things I enjoy: gardening and natural medicines!
Today I’d like to point you to www.medicinalplants-pharmacognosy.com, where they offer information on a variety of medicinal plants. Click HERE.
Today I was looking at mint, specifically spearmint. I grow spearmint in my herb garden and I’ve found that when I have a headache, I pinch off several leaves and just rub them into my forehead temples and at the base of my neck and it really helps alleviate the pain. Chew a few leaves (after washing, of course) for fresh breath and as an aid in digestive problems, or make a cup of mint tea by just putting a few leaves in your cup and pouring boiling water over them, letting them steep for a few minutes. And who wouldn’t love fresh mint from your own herb garden when making a mojito?
Mint is very easy to grow… in fact, you generally need to plant it within a container or before you know it, it will take over!
I encourage you to exercise your green thumb and check the site out today! Enjoy your week!
