Description of Organic Valerian Peppermint Tea, 24 Tea Bags, Alvita Tea
Valerian Tea - Valerian Mint Tea (Peppermint)
Used for beneficial properties at the time of Hippocrates in the 4th and 5th
centuries B.C., Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is native to England, Europe
and the United States. Valerian derives its name from the Latin valere,
"to be strong" referring to both the plant as well as its distinct odor.
It is often used for its soothing, relaxing beneficial properties. Peppermint
(Mentha piperita) is a universally-loved and widely-used flavoring. Peppermint's
value comes from the mint's volatile oil, which contains menthol, and is added
to many formulas for its therapeutic properties. So highly thought of, Peppermint
was included in a list of plants being taken to the New World. Together, Valerian
and Peppermint make a calming, relaxing tea.
