Peppermint is a herbaceous plant of the Labiate family.
It is distinguished from other types of mint especially for the oval shape of the leaves, of a bright green color that, if rubbed, release a strong aroma. The aromatic properties of mint are given by its essential oils present in greater quantity in the leaves.
In phytotherapy, thanks to the presence of essential oils, the mint infusion is recommended for the treatment of respiratory disorders, such as cough and sore throat, but also in case of digestive problems.
Especially in summer, the peppermint infusion is very appreciated for its refreshing and thirst-quenching action.
Infusion: pour a teaspoon of mint in boiling water (250 ml, about a cup), cover and leave to infuse for 5-10 minutes. Filter and drink the infusion.
It is important, immediately after pouring the mint in the boiling water, to cover the pot with a saucer or a lid to prevent the evaporation of essential oils.
Drink 2 to 4 cups a day.
Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool and dry place. It is not recommended for people allergic to nickel, as the mint contains considerable amounts of it.
