The name “mint” was coined by a mythical nymph named Minthe or Menthe, who, according to Greek mythology, was Pluto’s girlfriend. His wife, Persephone, was jealous of Menthe and turned her into a plant, now known as Mint. It has been used historically to treat stomach and digestive issues and to freshen breath. Additionally, it has been used to whiten teeth, flavor foods, and as a pest repellent. It has a variety of medicinal properties.
