Its name “peppermint” comes from Greek mythology. The nymph Mentha was turned into a plant with a distinct pepper scent, by the queen of Hell, Persephone, out of jealousy. During Romanian time it was used as a herb, before becoming very well-known in Europe thanks to its several properties and typical fragrance. Organic peppermint essential oil (EO) suits to skincare and to perfume the atmosphere.
