More information

The healing effects of the Cape Wild Mint (Mentha longifolia) have earned it a reputation as a traditional remedy for respiratory problems such as coughs, colds and asthma. As a tea its uses extend to treating stomach ache, flatulence and indigestion. It also contains alkaloids and flavonoids such as quercetin- 3-Oglucoside and apigenin responsible for anti-bacterial and anti-microbial effects. Mint oils are commonly used to flavour oral preparations and foods (lets remove this as we do not advise internal use). Cape Wild Mint helps to soothe and support the body where it is needed.*

The many beneficial properties of Cape Wild mint essential oil can be attributed to compounds such as pulegone, menthone, menthol, carvone, 1, 8-cineole, limonene and β-caryophyllene.

Description

Whilst more gentle in flavour, Cape Wild Mint is no less aromatic and as energising as a hot summer’s day washed clean by a thunderstorm. Try it in a steam bath or as a rub to relieve the sinuses and soothe the throat and chest. In a burner or diffuser it will keep insects at bay as well as uplift mood.
