Mint Bush
There are about 90 different bush mints that have been identified in Australia. It is a ground cover plant with light coloured flowers in Spring and mint flavoured leaves. Traditionally, aboriginal people used mints as a medicinal herb for headache and illnesses. Early Europeans saw the value of this plant to make a refreshing tea and today we can enjoy smelling the minty leaves and add them to drinks.
