Peppermint Leaf cut 2oz (Mentha piperita)

Of potent use in creating visionary dreams and psychic ability, Peppermint is also famous for its fresh aromatic fragrance.

The species name Mentha comes from Roman Mythology. Minthe was a lovely young nymph who caught the eye of Pluto, the ruler of the underworld. When Pluto's wife Persephone found out about his love for the beautiful nymph, she was enraged. She changed Minthe into a lowly plant, to be trodden underfoot. Pluto couldn't reverse Persephone's curse, but he did soften the spell somewhat by making the smell that Minthe gave off all the sweeter when she was tread upon.

Peppermint is a hybrid plant originally native to Asia and Europe that now occurs naturally in North America.

The dried peppermint leaves and stems, which contain a high degree of volatile oil called menthol, lend a fresh, minty taste to tea blends. The dried herb can also be used to make infused oils and tinctures for use in cosmetics and perfumery.
