Benefits Of Mint

Updated: Jul 16, 2019

Mint, which is well known as a breath freshener, is also a great herb that has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. Mint leaves are very aromatic and have a distinctive mouth refreshing taste. It is also known as Mentha, has more than two dozen species and hundreds of varieties. While the species that make up the Mentha genus are widely distributed and can be found in many environments, most grow best in wet environments and moist soils.

Benefits of Mint:

Mint leaf and tea

  • Good breath freshener

  • Aids digestion

  • Good for nausea

  • Reliefs from trapped wind

  • Relief from stomach cramping

  • Helps with fevers

  • Anti-bacterial

  • Natural sedative

  • Helps relieve stress


  • Rub mint oil on the forehead for headache relief

  • Help for nose relive

  • Help reduce cracked nipples for women who are breastfeeding

  • Great vapour to boost your mood

Caution: It is a powerful type of tea. And although it does have the wide range of health benefits explained above, there are still some possible side effects. The menthol can act as an allergen to some people, and can cause heartburn in others. I wouldn’t recommend it as a everyday drink.

Suggestion: When used as a oil, 2 drops is more than enough.
