Mints are perennial herbaceous plants, of the Lamiaceae family, comprising many species, many of which are cultivated as aromatic, condiment, ornamental and medicinal plants.

Spearmint is used as an aromatic plant while Peppermint is used for pharmaceutical purposes.

History

Little is known about the origins of Mint, except that it is believed to come from a vast region encompassing northern Africa, the Mediterranean basin and western Asia. Peppermint is thought to have originated spontaneously from the cross between water mint and spearmint and was supposedly first cultivated in 18th century in England and later in the rest of Europe and North Africa.

Very early on mint attracted man’s attention, especially that of the Hebrews and Egyptians. Indeed, the walls of the temple of Edfu are covered with hieroglyphs displaying the formulas of liturgical perfumes, where the Mint is mentioned.

It was one of Hippocrates’ medicinal substances, to which he attributed stimulant and diuretic properties.

Properties

The Kiotis laboratory has shown, through scientific tests, that Peppermint Essential Oil regenerates the skin by stimulating cell renewal. By acting in depth, it prevents signs of aging. On the surface, it also reinforces the barrier function by stimulating the production of lipids to nourish and protect the skin from external aggressions.

Did you know?

Mythology has it that Mint was a young nymph loved by Hades, the god of the hells. Persephone, the god’s jealous wife, killed her but Hades then transformed her into a graceful plant. It is said that Mint developed its intense and balsamic fragrance in memory of this great love.
