Peppermint - A cooling drink from your garden
Updated: Mar 3
Bo He, better known as (wild) MINT is a great alternative to drinks from the fridge during the summer. Even at room temperature, mint tea kind of feels cooling and refreshing.
Drinking or eating items straight out of the fridge (not to mention freezer) messes with the Qi (Energy) dynamic of your digestive system and introduces the pathogen ‘Cold’ into your body.
Bo He is calming and soothing and is used in many cultures to help with digestion, allergies, and at the start of the common cold.
It’s a wonderful herb as a tea, and tastes lovely as an additive in salads and many dishes, a fact that the snails in my garden already have discovered .. ☹
