Wild Mint Tea.
The ancient Greeks attributed the appearance of mint to a beautiful legend of the innocent and beautiful nymph Mentha, which Persephone, the jealous wife of Pluto, turned into a nondescript plant in a fit of jealousy. Pluto could not remove the spell from the nymph, but was able to give the plant a delicate, cold aroma and the ability to arouse feelings.
Thanks to the menthol contained in the leaves, mountain mint can be used as a local anesthetic, for example, for toothache, and also has antispasmodic and antiseptic properties.
