Wild Mint (Mentha Longifolia)

Wild Mint at Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, Swaziland

The rangers at Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary brought this versatile plant to our attention.

Dizzy bees

It is traditionally used to rob bee hives. The wild mint is mixed with grass and set alight. Its smoke stupefies the bees, giving you (hopefully!) sting free honey.

Fever Tea

Stewed in boiling water, wild mind makes a tea which is good for asthma sufferers or if you have a fever.

Minty fresh breath

The stem can be pulled in to bristles, making wild mint a super natural tooth brush.
