Peppermint: has been used as far back as 10,000 plus years for digestive support, according to archaeological evidence. It helps move gas through the body before cramping or bloating can occur while also stimulating bile flow to promote efficient digestion and bowel movements. Those with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), diarrhea or constipation can find great relieve with regular use of peppermint or spearmint teas.

Violet: is a gentle yet potent remedy which is commonly used both internally as food or tea, and externally to heal a variety of skin issues. It can help to clear skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. Violets have also been used to shrink tumors and cancers, as well as to reduce cysts, mastitis and fibrocystic breasts. Generally, violets are moisturizing and soothing both internally and externally.

Vanilla: this bean pod is the second more expensive spice/herb in the world after saffron. This is due to the painstaking process that takes vanilla from an orchid that blooms just one day each year, to hand pollination on that day, to harvesting at just the right moment, and on to an elaborate process to insure maximum fragrance and taste. Vanilla is warming, soothing to an upset stomach, heart healthy, great for the skin, is anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory.
