Herb of the Day: Peppermint

Mint is perhaps the flavor most commonly associated with the Holiday season.  The aroma of mint is everywhere this time of year.  A couple weeks ago we mentioned that typically spearmint, not peppermint is used in culinary preparations.  Herbalists tend to use peppermint more frequently than spearmint for a number of medicinal uses.  Peppermint has been used for centuries and can be used around the home in the case of a mouse or ant infestation.  At TriLight we love peppermint and use it in a number of our products!

The Plant

Peppermint is an extremely easy plant to grow and quite hardy.  With over 20 varieties including chocolate mint, orange mint and water mint; mint is found worldwide.  Mint plants thrive in partial shade to full sun and will grow in nearly any soil as long as they are watered regularly.  The aroma of mint will fill your garden and the beautiful pink, purple or white flowers attract insects and repel pests.  Many gardeners prefer to plant mint in containers as it tends to sprawl and will overtake your garden if given a chance.  Mint also grows well indoors.

Mindy used Lungs Plus with Flew Away and Lympha Rub:
“I am sure that this product is the reason my daughter was able to sleep when she came down with a nasty cold/cough. This combined with the Flew Away product and Lympha Rub applied to her throat helped her recover much more quickly than she has in the past…”

Yummy Yarrow is Faith’s favorite-
“This is my favorite product. When my daughter was up night after night coughing from allergy issues I tried yummy yarrow and it calmed her body and she was able to sleep.”

Patricia’s whole family uses Tummy Plus:
“I keep this handy for stomach aches and indigestion. Even my teenage children still take this formula when their stomach feels off. One dose does the trick!”

Sarah loves Soothing Salve:
“This salve is in my must have list! It healed burn wounds on my arms from a full baking weekend in just days! My son wiped out on his skateboard and knew to apply the salve once we cleaned him up. We tell everyone about Soothing Salve, works better than anything on the market and it is natural!”

Shafali’s family uses Hear No Evil:
“My son gets these drops from the fridge and asks me to rub his ears whenever he gets an earache. My toddler and 4-year old love it.”

Lung Tonic helps Maggie:
“I have had chronic breathing issues from allergies and mild asthma. This product helps me to breathe easier when I am starting to have difficulty. I am able to manage w/o medications. Thanks for a great product”

NR Glow is a favorite of Tim’s:
“This is one of our favorites from trilight, the kids don’t mind taking it and I like how many herbs are in it, makes me feel like I’m getting more bang for my buck.”

Meghan uses Peppermint and Chamomile:
This is a great product! I am convinced it has saved my kids and I from a few vomiting spells!”

Micah’s whole family likes Original Herbal Minerals :
“I purchased this to give my children instead of a traditional multivitamin. All five of them enjoy the taste and gladly take it each morning. My husband and I like it as well. I am confident this will be more effective than a vitamin we would chew or swallow whole!”

Blue Green Minerals is a staple for Joy:
“Even if this didn’t taste so good, I would take it and give it to my children because it gives us more energy and a greater feeling of well being and good health.”
