It is said that the original name of mint comes from Greek mythology. Hades fell in love with the beautiful spirit menthe, and Persephone, the wife of Hades, was very jealous. In order to make the Pluto forget manci, Persephone turned her into an insignificant grass, which grew on the roadside and was trampled by people. However, after manci, who was strong and kind-hearted, became a grass, she had a pleasant cool and charming fragrance on her body. The more she was crushed and trampled, the stronger it was.
