Peppermints 🍃

Peppermints are a herbs from a mint family, has much stronger favor and smell than any other mints .

Peppermints mostly used for making tea, you get tired of drinking same old ginger tulsi tea 🙂 

Can be used in making  oil,  flavored drinks . Also used in toothpaste and candy.

It has many medicinal values great for digestion,tension headache, diabetes and blood pressure and many more.

In garden, rub a few peppermint leaves on arms and legs, mosquitos will stay away from the smells.

I only plant l peppermints once few years ago, now they keep coming every spring, sometimes it’s very cold in winter then will die down but comes back in spring.

I use  in a tea so also dry some for winter time .

Almost year around I have peppermints in garden.
