Have you Googled the benefits of mint lately?

SAY Play campers have and it has benefits beyond its refreshing taste!

A SAY Play camper had a tooth ache and his fellow campers came to the rescue. They pulled some mint from the garden to make a paste to apply to the tooth. Mint is an anti-fungal, anti- bacterial and anti-inflammatory. It is also helpful in relieving tooth aches, headaches and stomach aches.


  • Add 4 leaves of mint with a table spoon of water and mash up until paste.
  • Apply to the painful or infected area.
