Peppermint is a perennial about 80 cm high, widely widespread in Europe and Asia, especially at low altitude. Formerly the Chinese praised the calming and antispasmodic properties of the mints, Hippocrates judged them aphrodisiac and Pliny appreciated their analgesic action. Today mint is, with verbena and linden, one of the queen herbal teas of our meals. All mints more or less have the same properties. The aromatic hydrosol of peppermint, sprayed on the face and in the mouth, will reassure travelers subject to transport evil.
