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.
