The Nymph Menthe
In a jealous rage, Goddess Persephone, wife of Hades, turned dear Menthe into the humble Mint plant so that everyone would trample her.
The joke was on Persephone, however, as the transformation did not halt the affair. In fact, it only increased Menthe’s powers.
For when Mint is tread upon its seductive aroma is released for all to enjoy. Many species of mint are known to be aphrodisiacs along with having profound healing powers.
The Nymph Menthe is an erotic goddess who assists with love, healing & spiritual cleansing. Mint remains among the most beloved of all herbs.
