Enjoy the many, many health benefits of peppermint tea when you drink this delicious herbal tisane - and when you use it topically and aromatherapeutically, as well!
We are so blessed to have at our fingertips a multitude of healing herbs, and brewing an herbal tea is a simple, natural way to enjoy the benefits of so many different herbs.
Peppermint tea has been valued for centuries for its ability to relieve cold symptoms, ease menstrual cramps, soothe an upset stomach, and so much more.
Here are a few more health benefits of peppermint tea (if you missed our other Peppermint Tea Benefits pages, they start here.)
If a cold, allergies, or overuse of your voice has irritated your throat, you'll find relief in a steamy cup of peppermint tisane.
This tea - especially with a dollop of honey added - will soothe your sore, dry throat and ease a persistent cough. An effective, nurturing remedy for people who use their voice continuously in their jobs! Why not keep a few peppermint teabags and a small jar of honey on hand at work for those days your throat could use some nurturing? Or treat yourself to some soothing peppermint tea with honey at bedtime.
As a preventive measure, you can also gargle with warm, soothing peppermint tea a few times a day when you feel a sore throat coming on.
There is a very good reason why peppermint is such a popular ingredient in commercial toothpastes and mouthwashes... this herb, with its distinctive flavor and refreshing taste, is a very effective breath freshener!
The invigorating taste of peppermint tea freshens your breath naturally - a healthy, effective, enjoyable alternative to drugstore mouthwash, with the added bonus of peppermint tea's antibacterial properties, which will help to destroy any bacteria in your mouth.
If you ever find yourself caught without a toothbrush and toothpaste, gargling with peppermint tea is a wonderful replacement to freshen your breath.
And don't forget, peppermint tea benefits bad breath whether enjoyed hot or cold!
Another benefit of this versatile herbal tea is its ability to soothe any aches and pains in your mouth.
As you sip your peppermint tea, swirl it gently in your mouth to ease a toothache or calm sore, inflamed, or infected gums. A warm, moistened peppermint teabag applied directly on the aching tooth or gums can be just as effective.
These aren't all of the health benefits of peppermint tea... Keep reading here.
