According to an ancient myth, mint took its name from Minthy Nymphae, who was trasnformed to a plant from Persephone, the daughter of Godess Demeter, as a punishment for lying with her husband and God of the Underworld (Hades), Plouton.
Mint is one of the most aromatic herbs in the world and is widely used as a cooking spice, as a beverage and essential oil. Our organic mint comes from the Pieria Mountains, where is farmed with special care and is hand-packaged, in order to keep intact its refreshment smell.
Mint is thought to have a strong healing action for the stomach and the digestive tract and is also known as a tonotic drink against common cold and its antiseptic and antifungal characteristics.
Our organic mint comes in the form of dried leaves in 15g packaging.
