Mint is a fantastic and prolific herb. Once you plant it, you’ve got it for life, especially if you don’t contain it in one specific area. It wants to grow wild, which is fabulous if you love mint and know how to use it. I’ve written quite a few posts on using mint but I have never provided a monograph page for your materia medica, which is my aim today, as well as providing you with links to my mint posts to get you started with using this glorious herb!
A monograph is a fantastic little page of information that is available at your fingertips in the event of minor injury or illness. A page like this will give you all of the pertinent information that you need to put your herbs to work when it’s most needed. Often kept in notebooks (a materia medica or herbal notebook), these pages can make the difference in whether you reach for a plastic bottle or something from your herbal medicine cabinet.
If you’ve never grown or used mint before, here are a few blog posts I’ve written to get you thinking about how you might use this wonderful herb in your home, on your homestead, and for your good health.

If you are interested in expanding your knowledge of herbs, click over to the Herbal Academy of New England and sign up for their Intermediate Herbal Course (click course photo below). It’s been fabulous for me, and I’ve learned quite a lot in the past months. I highly recommend it! Also, I’d like to invite you to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss any of my new Herbal Primer series, where I will be sharing all about the herbs, and recipes you can make with them.
