ACCORDING TO GREEK MYTH, THE MINT PLANT ORIGINALLY WAS A BEAUTIFUL NYMPH NAMED "MINTHE" WHO LIVED IN THE RIVER COCYTUS IN THE UNDERWORLD; SHE WAS THE SECRET LOVER OF "HADES". IN FACT, HE ADORED HER. WHEN "PERSEPHONE" FOUND OUT ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HER HUSBAND AND THE WATER NYMPH, SHE WAS FURIOUS, AND, IN A FIT OF JEALOUSY, TOOK REVENGE ON HER HUSBAND'S MISTRESS BY STOMPING HER, EVENTUALLY CURSING AND TRANSFORMING "MINTHE" INTO A LOWLY PLANT.

ALTHOUGH "HADES" COULD NOT UNDO HIS WIFE'S SPELL, HE DID HAVE THE POWER TO ADD ONE OF HIS OWN. HE BESTOWED UPON "MINTHE "A FRAGRANCE THAT WOULD GROW SWEETER AND STRONGER WHENEVER SHE WAS TROD UPON. OVER TIME, THE NAME "MINTHE" WAS CHANGED TO "MENTHA" AND BECAME A GENUS OF THE MINT PLANT. SHE REMAINS ONE OF THE MOST BELOVED OF THE HERBS.

ADD A TOUCH OF MINT TO YOUR GARDEN THIS YEAR AND ENJOY THE FLOWERS, AROMA, AND FLAVOR.
