Mint | Incredible Edible Todmorden | Herbs


mintmentha piperita

Peppermint cools though hot; it’s an outstanding herb for a wide range of digestive remedies, helpful for fevers and colds, and a useful remedy for concentration and mental focus. It contains menthol which is cooling and anaesthetic to the skin.

Pluto, god of the underworld, fell in love with Minthe, so jealous Proserpine, his wife, turned her into the plant that now bears her name.
