Description

The best peppermint comes from the northwestern United States. The pure moist mountain air of the spring and early summer growing season gives this peppermint some of the highest volatile oil counts of any member of the mint family. Generally the second cut is the most flavourful, coolest and most pungent. Peppermint is an herb and contains no caffeine. Quite often peppermint is consumed after meals as the oils stimulate the flow of bile to the stomach and helps relieve gas pains. Additionally, it has been reported and written that peppermint sweetens the breath and calms the digestive system, plus it helps heartburn, stomach ache and nausea. There are several varieties and countries of origin of Chamomila -sometimes referred to as bachelor buttons because of the shape of the flower heads - but the best quality comes from Egypt. Essential oils in the flowers produce a soothing pleasant aroma and a fruity character. Combining these two wonderful and extensively used herbs has produced a wonderful, caffeine free, cup of herbal tea.

Additional Info

Camomile flowers have a yellow center and white petals - they almost look like a daisy. In some parts of Europe, particularly southern France, camomile plants have been strewn on floors or pathways to give the area a good scent. In many circles Camomile is called nighty night tea or sleepy tea on account of its natural properties which promote restfulness and drowsiness. .
