Any Mint I would contain it and grow in a pot otherwise it will take over the garden. Just a warning!

Thank you EJ! I use all of those quite often and had mint lunchtime yesterday and cilantro in my herb salad tonight. I like basil with mozarrela and tomato with olive oil and a few pine nuts.

I have rosemary, sage, oregano, thyme and flat parsley overwintering near east windows in my kitchen. Last summer I grew Basil and Thai basil - a different genus: does it also have healing properties? And Cilantro, and a chocolate Mint, a varietal of peppermint. I tried to overwinter that, but it died back to the ground. I'm hoping it will revive yet in warmer weather. It was delicious! Cilantro does bolt quickly in the heat, you have to plant it in secessions, and in filtered shade when the heat is on full bore. Basil will also bolt eventually: both are annuals. I would love to know a good source for flavorful plants of Mexican Oregano and Greek Oregano. The plants I find around here are almost tasteless, a far cry from the ones I had growing in California, or the kind I buy dried.

Make sure that you put your peppermint in a pot or it will take over your garden. So plant it in a pot. It is also a very hardy plant too. I also am growing basil, rosemary, sage, thyme and oregano. So far my basil and oregano are coming up. My sage is from two years ago and my thyme is still growing from seeds from last year. Still waiting for my rosemary to grow. Not to keen on Cilantro. Did try to grow it but it did not survive the heat here in Florida. Also got to plant more parsley too.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

YUM!

Cilantro is a good mercury chelator, too.
Good to take after having an amalgam removed, to flush any toxins released by the mercury in the amalgam.

3 Herbs for Summer Cooking

Summer is an ideal time to try fresh, seasonal herbs in your meals. Take advantage of these three classics and their unique flavors to liven up any dish!
Basil: An old-world tradition and culinary staple that imparts a fresh flavor to cooked and raw dishes alike, basil has a centuries long reputation for providing health promoting properties: In India, basil is used to fight colds and other infections and is applied topically for minor cuts and scrapes. Experiment with adding fresh basil leaves to sandwiches and salads - or even ice water- for a unique and refreshing flavor.
Cilantro: A natural source of fiber, cilantro (the fresh leaves of the coriander plant) is considered a healing spice. Traditionally used in India as an anti-inflammatory agent, and studied in the U.S. for cholesterol-lowering properties, its pungent flavor lends itself perfectly to Mexican and Vietnamese dishes. To impart the best flavor, add chopped fresh cilantro right before serving.
Peppermint: Also known as mint or garden mint, peppermint is easy to grow and does more than lend a bright, spicy flavor to foods and beverages - it can also help soothe an upset stomach, as well as open nasal passages blocked due to cold or allergies. It makes an aromatic addition to fruit salads, iced teas and plain water. For a cooler, more subtle flavor, try spearmint.
