Dr. Ron Sherman
December 13, 2016

Tis the season of peppermint flavored treats! Whether you’re baking bark or adding a flare to your hot chocolate, be sure to set aside your leftover peppermint extract to keep your smile extra fresh.

Powdered peppermint leaves have also been used historically to freshen breath and whiten teeth. Add a drop of two of the extract to your toothbrush in between meals and you’ll be smiling bright through the holidays and beyond!

The following festive holiday recipes inlcude this cure all herb:

  • Peppermint Red Velvet Cake
