The Power of Peppermint
As a child growing up peppermint was used by my parents to take away gas pains. I remembered my mom or dad would bring a cup of water to boil, add about a teaspoon of peppermint, along with a few sprinkles of black pepper and sugar and give it to me to drink.
In our home, we called it peppermint tea and it really did work wonders. Peppermint has a cooling effect and a pleasant taste with a nice aroma. Well, that was my childhood days and even to this day peppermint has not lost its touch.
peppermint is still used and enjoyed by many people worldwide. Peppermint comes from the peppermint plant, I was so amazed years ago when I found this out that a plant could produce such a pleasant odor as peppermint. To learn more about how to grow a peppermint plant follow this link.
My mother-in-law grew this plant in her yard also the five-star resort that I worked for many years ago grew this plant as part of their garden feature. At first, it was pretty strange to see a plant that had the aroma of peppermint but I was also excited at the same time.
