Peppermint is the remedy for indigestion, working in just minutes to ease whatever is causing the problem. Not only that, but long term use can help to balance your digestive tract so the problem of indigestion disappears. It’s no coincidence that there is the “after dinner mint,” or that most over-the-counter indigestion remedies are mint flavored. It is a scientific fact that peppermint works, and quickly. That’s not all it does. Peppermint has some very powerful pain relieving properties and is one of the ingredients in Migrastick, for headache. You can also make a delicious tea from dried leaves. If you have room and a garden you can grow it; it’s very easy. As an herbalist I once played a game with myself to decide what plant I could have in my medicine chest if I was only allowed one plant. Peppermint won.
