    Use peppermint. Make peppermint tea from fresh or dried peppermint. Add a heaped teaspoon of the dried or fresh peppermint to a cup of boiling water. Allow to steep for a few minutes. Strain and drink.
    • If you don't like it unsweetened, add a little lemon or honey to improve the taste. However, many people love the refreshing taste of peppermint on its own, so try it first.
