Australian River Mint (Mentha australis)

Posted by Bio-First Team on

Found only in Australia this delicate mint grows wild near fresh waterways – in fact the 2022 floods almost wiped out the whole season’s growth, so Bio-First counts itself lucky to have supply of an alcohol & sugar free Syrup.  

We include it because modern analysis has confirmed the basis for thousands of years of traditional use by indigenous peoples, especially in relieving congestion from coughs.

Like other members of the mint family, Mentha australis has multiple health benefits linked to antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. 

Of course Australian River Mint also has a super aroma and flavour. 

In common with other herbs, it’s best consumed in moderation. Even in small amounts Australian River Mint comes through clearly and contributes its value to a delicious natural remedy.

Mentha australis is known for its:

  • Soothing effect
  • Antimicrobial activity
  • Help in congestion relief
  • Distinctive flavour and aroma
  • May reduce headaches
