HERE’S TO A HEALTHY HOLIDAY!
Washington is the top-producing mint state in the nation, producing the most spearmint and peppermint – at the absolute best quality.
Many Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes use fresh or dried peppermint leaves in salads and sauces. Dried peppermint leaves can also be steeped in water for an amazing Holiday-themed tea.
Ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians used mints, including peppermint, as a medicine thousands of years ago.
The active ingredient in peppermint is menthol. Some small studies show it can lessen the pain of migraine headaches. It may also reduce other symptoms like light sensitivity and nausea.
