DIY Holiday Gifts: Licorice and Peppermint Tea Print 4 LikeDislike By Emilie Berner Sometimes, finding the perfect gift can be expensive, and impersonal. This year, share a lovely, long-lasting gift, by blending together these herbs and roots to make a great holiday herbal tea. It has a sweet, minty taste, and is greatly soothing to bloated holiday bellies! Peppermint has been used throughout the ages as an antidote to nausea and stomach cramps but recent studies have discovered that it is directly linked to anti-pain channels in the colon that could be of benefit to IBS sufferers. Studies have also pointed to the benefit of peppermint for headaches and even the common cold! Your loved ones will thank you!
