Mint energizes the qi of the liver, which is responsible for ease and smooth transitions in your daily life. Having strong liver qi keeps you emotionally stable and adaptable in your moment to moment experience. It allows you to easily move through stressors and change, preventing them from triggering extreme emotional responses.
For women, it is helpful to drink mint tea during the week before your period. Liver qi is often compromised then, as women experience emotional fluctuations. Drinking this tea, and strengthening your liver qi will help you to grow your fuse a little longer.
