4-5 times per day: Tea: steep 1 tsp. Dried peppermint leaves in 1 cup boiling water for 10 minutes; strain and cool. Drink 4 - 5 times per day between meals. Peppermint tea appears to be safe, even in large quantities.

Once a day: Peppermint can cause issues too if you drink or ingest too much of it.
