Fresh, mentally cleansing and helps elevate boredom. I find a fresh mint tea is very refreshing yet calming at the same time. It has a dual purpose: mentally helping to gain clarity and focus and at the same time calming the stomach. I love working with all the different species of mint especially when working abroad. Recently I was working at the Jane Goodall chimpaneze institute in South Africa and I was heartened to find wild mint, which I made into a macerated oil. Some of the chimps I was priveleged to work with self selected mint oil.
I love to cook with the mint infused oil: especially drizzled over new potatoes and added to salads.
