HISTORICAL USES OF PEPPERMINT
Peppermint leaves have been used as a remedy for indigestion since the Ancient Egyptians, and the ancient Greeks and Romans valued it as a stomach soother as well. During the eighteenth century, the herb became popular in Western Europe as a remedy for nausea, vomiting, morning sickness, respiratory infections, and menstrual disorders.
Peppermint was first listed in the London Pharmacopoeia in 1721. In modern times it appears in the British Herbal pharmacopeia as a remedy for intestinal colic, gas, colds, morning sickness, and menstruation pain.
HISTORICAL USES OF SPEARMINT
Spearmint was once macerated and added to milk because it appeared to lengthen the shelf-life of milk and keep it from curdling. It was also recommended for use by people with delicate constitutions or young children with ‘feeble digestive powers’. One herbal published in the 17th century listed more than 40 ailments that spearmint was good for, including stings and bites, wound healing, and sores. It was also highly favored for helping with memory and reducing headaches.

HISTORICAL USES OF FENNEL
Fennel history dates back to Pliny (AD 23-79), the Roman author of The Naturalis Historie. He believed that serpents ate and rubbed against fennel because it was able to improve their eyesight after shedding their skins. Following that observation, Pliny believed fennel was so powerful that he used the aromatic herb to treat 22 different ailments. Hippocrates suggested fennel could aid wet nurses to increase their milk supply.
A staple in the household of King Edward I of England, his wardrobe account books from 1281 listed a purchase of 8 1/2 pounds of fennel seed – a month’s supply! Why so much? Fennel seed was used as a condiment and an appetite suppressant. One Church mandated ‘Fastying dayes’, the faithful used fennel to get through the day.
