Growing up my grandmother would always be supplied on spearmint in her garden . Its extremly beneficial for many purposes ..... 1) Stomach- spearmint tea is great for tummy aches , nausea, detox, and constipation . Can be prepared in tea or throw some leaves in your daily water with lemon if desired. 2) flu- love drinking this tea when i get a cold or flu. The menthol helps me breathe easier and helps my cough . 3) weight loss- this tea can help yoi detox, losing extra weight. 4) Relaxation- I especially enjoy drnking this tea before bed to relax myself since it does release stress.
