Show 94 – Our Big, Fat Mint Family

With Mother’s Day almost upon us and Father’s Day plus BBQ season right around the corner, we’ve been thinking a lot about the importance of family. Large or small, families often share a set of common themes or ideas expressed in their physicality and way of being.

Plant families are just like our human families. Today, we’re getting to know the mint family (Lamiaceae) and how its many, varied members can play a vital role in our own family health.

HERBS WE MENTIONED:

  • Skullcap
  • Spearmint
  • Peppermint
  • Sage
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Basil/Tulsi
  • Hyssop
  • Lemon Balm
  • Motherwort
  • Vitex
  • Teak
  • Lavender

We need your questions.

If we use your question in Herbalism 101 we will send you Natural Nutrition for free. Natural Nutrition is available on our store. This easy to read resource is a brightly illustrated primer on vitamins and minerals. It includes both food sources and herbs that naturally fill your life with good health. This guide includes basic nutrients, where common sources are and why you should eat them. As an added bonus, we have included sources of probiotics, complete protein and an easy guide to hydration.
