Kitchen Medicine



Peppermint (Mentha piperita)


This is an old standby remedy.
Useful for conditions of the digestive tract, such as winds, nausea and cramps.
With Valerian it makes a good remedy for insomnia, melancholy and hypochondria.
Never boil Peppermint as this destroys and dissipates the volatile oils.
It is anticatarrhal and has a reputation for loosening tough and stubborn catarrhal congestion.
However, Peppermint should not be used too regularly as it can irritate the intestinal lining.
