Mint, an amazing plant multipurpose

Most people love the freshness of mint. We see the word "mint" and the first thing many of us think it is the plant that can help freshen our breath. It's rare that we take a handful of mint at the grocery store with the intent to use it to fresher breath.

Food using for the mint.

But did you know that mint - whether it be peppermint, spearmint, chocolate mint, etc. - has many uses? Mint leaves fresh or dried have a sweet taste and pleasant finish with a sensation of freshness; they are great in jelly, tea, ice cream, candies, and syrups -!

In some parts of the Middle East, mint is used in many dishes of lamb. If you happen to travel to the Middle East, you will probably have a cup of mint tea after a meal. This is because the mint tea is excellent for digestion. But you will not go to the Middle East to enjoy the mint this way. You can put a drop of essential oil of mint in the chocolate when you make a chocolate fondue after meals.You can even sprinkle a few fresh mint leaves in a fruit salad or vegetables.

Other uses of mint

The mint is not only great in food. It has many other uses. For example, mint works well to relieve headaches. Take a washcloth wet and cold, pour a few drops of peppermint oil, and then place it on your forehead. To relieve heartburn, gas or indigestion, put a drop of peppermint oil in a cup of tea. And if you want a relaxing massage, add a few drops of peppermint oil to your body cream scented.

Kill all bacteria transmitted by air in the room and refresh the space by putting a few drops of peppermint oil in an oil burner. To relieve tired feet, put a few drops of peppermint oil in a footpath. And if you want to freshen your laundry, add 2 or 3 drops of peppermint oil in a dry washcloth and put the washcloth in the dryer with clothes.

It is also a good idea to pack some peppermint oil capsules and take them between meals. This will avoid having around because of food not properly digested. If you have any gas pain, rub some peppermint oil on your stomach or lower back. You will feel relieved in no time. By: Emmanuel Lacroix
