It is a general stimulant more powerful than alcohol or coffee -- without the degenerative side effects. Pepper- mint is known to ease digestion, strengthen the heart muscles, and generally cleanse the internal or- gans. Externally, peppermint leaves may be used to refresh and relieve minor pain. Made into a salve, or used as a bath additive, the volative oils in the leaves will provide relief from itchy skin problems. In cooking, the adaptable mints add flavor to cakes, cookies and candies while mint jelly and mint sauce create wonderful accompaniments to meats, especially lamb. All mints are best picked on a warm sunny day, just before flower- ing, when all of the volatile oils can be captured in their leaf tops, the me,st tender and flavorful parts. Al- low to dry by hanging, then store in glass containers away from any light source. When using as a tea always infuse, pour boiling water over the herb, and steep, covered with a cloth, so none of the wonderful oils will escape in the steam, for at least ten minutes To check your dried mint for freshness, rub a few pieces between your fingertips if the aroma exists so will the flavor. By preserv- ing their aromas, flavors, and vola- tile oils in alcohol, liquor or vinegar, most mints will retain their medical properties for a long period of time.
