Peppermint is July’s herb of the month, and I placed it here because this feisty mint is dramatically cooling and a great ally in the hot summer sun. We use it to cool off in iced tea, coffee, ice cream, and as a way to relieve the pain and heat of sunburns when combined with aloe vera and lavender. Not only is peppermint cooling to the entire body, but it helps ease burning, gas, bloating and discomfort in the digestive system, clears the mind so we can better focus, and invigorates the spirit. This is one plant we are never without in our home, and the kids love it too! I have a saying when blending teas “Peppermint hides many sins” – so next time you make a not-too-great-tasting herbal formula, consider if peppermint might be a good way to mask the less than pleasant flavors of some other herbs.
