Holistic Remedies On the Homestead | Peppermint

If you haven't yet been following me on YouTube, now might be the time to do it! For the past few months I've been working on the series "Holistic Medicine on the Homestead", and while I have only posted a few videos here and there, I realized that what most people want to hear in the series is what certain herbs are used for, what they can grow on their own, and how to use them. 

This week, I'm starting with peppermint—and extremely easy herb to grow in your garden or in a container on your back deck. It has amazing medicinal properties, such as being anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, and anti-bacterial. It helps in the healing of (and easement of) respiratory issues, asthma, digestive tract diseases (such as IBS) and upset tummies (colic, indigestion), cracked and chapped skin, and so much more. 

Watch this weeks' video on Peppermint, and stay tuned for next weeks video on a new herb!
