Burrito (Burro Tea) – Among the digestive herbs, Andean tea or burro tea, also known as “Burrito” is one of the richest. Its scientific name is Aloysia polystichya. Its aroma is very similar to mint with a light touch of celery and its leaves are thin and dark green. It has very small white flowers that contribute greatly to the aroma, and a certain resemblance to cedar tea or lemon verbena, but the leaves are darker and longer. According to a study carried out by professionals of the Faculty of Chemistry of Asunción of Paraguay, this herb also has many minerals. Among them: calcium, zinc and copper. In addition, it was found that it does not contain mycotoxins.
Poleo (Pennyroyal)– This pleasant smelling herb also known as “Griseb” belongs to the mint family, and is a tasty addition to sun teas and cold beverages. Remedially, Poleo has been used for years to settle stomachaches, colic, and accompanying headaches. For fevers or beginning stages of colds, Poleo is either drunk or bathed in to increase perspiration, which in turn frees the body of waste and toxins. Because it is so gentle and tasty, Poleo is great in remedies for infants and children, but too much will act as an emetic.
Incayuyo (incan tea) is good against gonorrheal infection, stomach, colds, headache.
Mint- The compound primarily responsible for the aroma and flavor of spearmint is R-carvone. It was originally used as a medicinal herb to treat stomach ache and chest pains. During the Middle Ages, powdered mint leaves were used to whiten teeth. It can also aids digestion.
Peperina or Peppermint- It´s a member of the “mint-like” aromatic herbs (of the genus Minthostachys and the Family Lamiaceae), which are limited to mountain zones of South America, with about 12 species distributed at various altitudes from Venezuela to Argentina. The peppermint herb is a hybrid of water mint and spearmint and was first discovered in 1750 in London, England. Peppermint is now grown throughout the U.S. and Europe. The leaves and stems of peppermint have relatively high oil content and are the part of the plant used medicinally. When taken orally as tea or tablets, peppermint is also used for relieving respiratory conditions such as colds, coughing, acute respiratory difficulties, and for bacteria, fungal, and viral infections. It may be inhaled as oil for soothing irritated nasal passages from allergies and can be rubbed on the chest for comfort and relief of other respiratory discomfort.
