Lemon thyme & lemon verbena
Lemon thyme is a perennial garden that has been employed since ancient times for medicinal and culinary uses. Thyme has traditionally been associated with courage, with medieval women giving sprigs of thyme to knights going into battle. It has also been used as an herbal remedy for a host of ailments. Rich in volatile oils, minerals, beneficial phenols, and flavonoids, it’s a healthy beverage choice.
Lemon verbena has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and astringent properties. It is particularly beneficial for the digestive system, where it helps with conditions like indigestion, nausea, vomiting, bloating, and cramps. It also helps with constipation, diarrhea, and colon irritability.
Lemon balm & peppermint
Lemon balm is considered a calming herb. It was used as far back as the Middle Ages to reduce stress and anxiety, promote sleep, improve appetite, and ease pain and discomfort from indigestion, including gas and bloating, as well as colic.
Peppermint is a delicious and refreshing way to boost your overall health in a number of ways due to its ability to improve digestion, reduce pain, eliminate inflammation, relax the body and mind, cure bad breath, aid in weight loss, and boost the immune system.

This farm experience with Bruno is a jewel! I recommend it to anyone who would like to learn traditional Portuguese farming and be able to replicate at home.

Efter et stykke tid midt i byen ville vi gerne lidt på landet, og vi fandt Portugal Farm Experiences, som er et lille firma med et stort udvalg af ture, hvor man kan besøge økologiske landbrug og følge produktionen af alt muligt, fx vin, grøntsager, svampe, snegle og krydderurter. Estevão var meget imødekommende ift at finde et tidspunkt som passede os, og krydderurter-farmeren Bruno var både charmerende og god til at fortælle alt om produktionen. Estevão kørte os frem og tilbage, og svarede venligt på vores mange spørgsmål. Portugal Farm Experiences kan anbefales på det allervarmeste.

The tea was great, but it was merely a conduit to even better conversation. We learned so much about the local culture and perspectives through the simple act of preparing and process all the herbs. Just excellent.

It was a great experience! My partner and I really enjoyed our time going to the farm and learn more about organic herbs with Bruno!
