The Story of Peppermint

Let me begin with the disclaimer that while I don’t believe in the mythology of the ancient Greeks and Romans, I love the stories! As I was studying the history of peppermint I came across this little gem, one I had never heard or read.

Apparently, before she became a delicious hard candy proudly displayed in bowls at restaurant hostess desks and hotels counters around the world, peppermint was a nymph named Minthe (also known as Menthe or Mentha). More specifically, she was a naiad, a water nymph, that caught the eye of the Underworld’s leading bad boy, Hades. There are differing accounts, an ancient he-said, she-said difference of opinion, but whether she seduced Hades or vice versa, the Queen of the Underworld, Persephone, was not pleased. She destroyed Minthe and turned her into the plant we know today as mint. Peppermint is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and is useful and beautiful in so many ways! To find just a few of its many uses and healing effects, check out the oil on this website! Its 100% pure and straight from India, where it grows naturally!

 

If Minthe smelled at all like the peppermint we have today, it’s no wonder she turned Hades head!

I had a full hysterectomy and April 2018. The hormone patches did not work meaning my body had a horrible reaction to them. I ordered hormone pellets witch took six weeks. I was given a bottle of hormone oil which saved my life, literally. It also saved my family’s life. I definitely recommend these natural oils. Great product.

Joan's blends are amazing! I use the Soothing Relief blend for my nerve & back pain and it helps significantly. The quantity is generous for the price. These oils are pure, like liquid gold!
