We grow "chocolate peppermint" plants on our porch, and it is such a fun, unique flavor! If you can find a nursery that sells the stuff, I highly recommend it! But even if you can only find standard peppermint, making tea from it is quite nice.

Peppermint oil has long been thought of as a tummy soother – helping with nausea, indigestion, IBS, and other such ailments. It also may be a cancer fighter! In animal studies, it stopped the growth of pancreatic, mammary, and liver tumors! Peppermint oil is also a natural anti-microbial, killing off nasty bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori (which may cause stomach ulcers), Salmonella, E. coli, and the “super bug” methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)!

And, take a big breath of fresh air, because peppermint oil can help your respiratory system!
