Water mint: health benefits and ingredients water mint

  1. The water mint (Mentha aquatica) is a plant from the lipped flower family (Lamiaceae). This occurs in large parts of Europe, as well as in (parts of) North America, Asia, North Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Watermint is the milder sister of peppermint. It looks the same, smells just as aromatic, but is a bit weaker and, due to its mildness, is better used as a tea than its powerful sister. The water mint likes to grow on banks and during the summer it flowers with lilac colored spherical inflorescences. It was an important plant for the Celts. Proven active ingredients of the water mint are essential oils, bitter substances, enzymes, tannins, limes, menthofuran, menthol and pinene.
