Mint

Mentha x piperita
A plant known since ancient times: according to Greek legend, Mint (or Minthe) was a nymph seduced by Hades, god of the underworld. Persephone, the wife of Hades became enraged with jealousy and turned Minthe into a plant that people would constantly walk on. Hades imbued the plant with peppermint, so whenever the plant was crushed underfoot, it would release a wonderful aroma. Mint is used in cooking to add flavour to first courses, lamb dishes and in mince meat fillings as well as in the preparation of desserts and alcoholic drinks. From mint can extract mint menthol, an ingredient of many perfumes, cosmetics and medicines. In the language of flowers is the symbol of perfect love.
