Lemon Mint Tea for Gas
Gas got you down, chug down a nice lemon mint tea for lots of relief. While both mint tea and juice of lemons are popular ingredients in many home remedies, this tea is made from the lemon plant. This herb has a distinct lemony odor when crushed, and the tea is often described as having a lemonade-like flavor. Herbal experts say it can relieve the cramps associated with gas pains, and may also ease nausea. Bring the water to a gentle boil. Steep the lemon mint in the water for 10 to 15 minutes. Strain the tea and let cool to desired temperature, then drink.
