In Egypt, evidence of a type of peppermint has been found in tombs dating from 1000 BC. It is currently in the British herbal pharmacopoeia for Intestinal Problems, Colic, Flatulence, Cold and Dysmenorrhea. One drop of Peppermint oil is the equivalent of drinking 26 cups of Peppermint herbal tea. Cooling and uplifting Peppermint oozes with clean freshness and is full of antiviral and antibacterial properties, commonly used in dental hygiene, and is fantastic at boosting your immune system. Peppermint is a great insect repellent especially to ants.
