Peppermint hydrosol

Peppermint – the aromatic source of energy

With its absolutely characteristic smell, peppermint is certainly one of the best-known medicinal and aromatic herbs and is particularly popular as a tea - whether for pure enjoyment or because of its many healing properties. It can calm the stomach and bring relief, especially if you have gastrointestinal problems. Since peppermint is a very robust plant, it can be easily grown in pots or in the garden. It loves partially shaded locations, moist soils and can spread quickly and profitably (sometimes to the gardener's chagrin). By the way, the best effect is achieved with the leaves before the plant begins to bloom in summer.

Using peppermint hydrosol

One of the most outstanding properties of peppermint is its mentally stimulating and invigorating effect. Plant water made from the fragrant herb can work wonders on concentration as a body spray or room spray and at the same time has a slightly cooling effect - a real blessing on hot days. The hydrolate can also be used successfully for headaches and fatigue. For colds, especially spasmodic coughing fits, inhalation with peppermint plant water helps to soothe the irritation in the throat and soothe the bronchial tubes.

Attention: Peppermint should not be used as a room or pillow spray for babies and small children.
