Mint (Mentha) is a type of herb in the Lamiaceae family. There are many different subspecies of mint, including peppermint, spearmint, chocolate mint, wild mint, etc. This herb grows in practically all conditions and spreads like a weed when not planted in a contained area. Cut off a stem of mint and place it in a jar of water for a few days and wait for the roots to grow to propagate your mint plant. Mint has a calming effect on both the mind and body. It helps calm an anxious mind and relaxes the body. It is also a good supplement for digestion and helps relieve bloating.
Mint herbal tea is an invigorating drink that is calming but also clears the mind to focus. Mint tea can be made by using fresh or dried mint, depending on your preference. Using dried herbs often creates a stronger taste than using fresh herbs. Add mint to your salads, pesto, and even to water for a refreshing kick.
For fresh mint, we recommend keeping a mint plant ready for when you want to use it. This is the best option to have fresh mint on hand. Mint is a very invasive plant, best grown in separate pots from your other herbs. Cut mint will last in the refrigerator for a few days, but not much longer. Dried mint doesn't require any special storage, as long as it is kept in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
