Green mint
Fresh and fragrant: this is mint!

This green perennial herb, which resists heat and cold, has many virtues, which were well known in ancient Greece so that Hippocrates considered mint an aphrodisiac, while Pliny boasted its analgesic action.

Mint dues its name to Greek mythology: in fact the nymph Mintha had the misfortune to be so nice to make love with Pluto, god of the underworld and lord of the dead; she began to neglect his wife Proserpina who, for revenge, transformed the nymph in a plant. Pluto was desperate but he couldn’t bring her back, and his last gesture of love was to give this plant
the distinctive and fresh scent that everyone knows.

Also the Greeks and Romans used mint to flavor the person and the water bath.
