Mentha piperita

Mint has been used since antiquity in many Mediterranean and Eastern countries, Egypt, Greece, China. In Western Europe, the druids first discovered its virtues. They started many cultures in simple bogs and wetlands of the region of Milly la Forêt.

The name "mint" comes from the Greek nymph Mintha. Hades, god of the underworld was in love with her. Persephone, jealous, turned her into a small fragrant plant, which was called mint. Desperate, Hades, travelled the country to find his vanished love.

Mint is a nervous stimulant. At the same time, it is balancing in case of exagerated excitement. Therefore it can be used in case of weakness of the digestive system, when it needs stimulation. But it can also be used in case of insomnia, tremors, nervous vomiting.

It is one of the most famous medicinal plants. It also has culinary uses (tagines, peas, potatoes ...)

Use:
2 g (2 tbsp.) per cup, in an infusion.
