Cold and flu symptoms: Best tea with virucidal properties easing body aches and congestion

Peppermint is a soothing, caffeine-free herb that can help to fight the symptoms of a cold and have you feeling better in no time.

In particular, peppermint can help to soothe your throat and promote better rest and relaxation.

The menthol in peppermint helps to calm inflamed mucous membranes in the sinuses and throat; by thinning the mucus, it is less likely to block the sinus passageways.

Menthol also acts as a decongestant which means it breaks down phlegm and mucous congestion.
