Chocolate Mint [Mentha piperita]

Like other types of mint, Chocolate Mint can be used medicinally.

The plant is a good source of rosmarinic acid, an antioxidant that fights inflammation. This makes Chocolate Mint a good treatment for allergy relief and digestive woes.

Mint oil can also be used topically, applied to the temples for headaches or on the body for muscle aches, joint pain, and itching. In aromatherapy, mint oil is used to treat coughs, colds, reduce pain, improve mental function, and relieve stress.
