Peppermint has been used for ages in cultures around the world for purification rituals, as incense, and in the form of calming tea. To help improve concentration, students in ancient times wore a crown of twisted mint and relied on the sweet, clear scent for its stimulating effects.
The raspberry bush (Rubus idaeus) is mainly known for its tasty fruits, raspberries. However, its leaves are also used in traditional herbalism for the preparation of tea. Archaeological findings show that both the fruits and leaves of the plant were used as early as the Stone Age. Herbalist priests and monks of the Middle Ages often cultivated the bushes in their monastery gardens.

Milk thistle, also known as Marian thistle, Mary thistle and Scotch thistle, belongs to the Asteraceae family, and owes its name to the white speckling of its leaves.
