Apart from the long held and undeniable reputation that Peppermint has as a food flavouring and colouring, it is useful aromatically and while it may not actually affect the respiratory system as it seems to, how can you deny the way it makes you feel?
As a digestive stimulant it works well and it also has some antiseptic and sweat inducing properties that are very useful in times of Cold and Flu.
It strikes well and quite quickly from seed and will reseed itself with regular abandon.
