If you already love raspberries and didn't need a medicinal excuse to eat them (or drink tea with their leaves), then you will be extra happy with this post.

Mint for the Mind

on Wed, 07/21/2010 - 20:30

In all this summer heat and madness, a little mint goes a long way. Not only is it cooling and relaxing but it (Bo He) specifically targets the lungs and liver in Chinese medicine. Some symptoms or conditions that mint targets are : early stage fever, red eyes (especially from allergies), sore throat, menstrual irregularities or pain, rashes (it will "vent" them - especially in the early stages so they resolve quicker), irritability, depression, heat stroke or summer heat, or if you just simply get the feeling you need to "cool yourself off".
