If you've fallen in love with Peppermint (Mentha piperita), you're in good company, figuratively speaking. According to a myth from Ancient Greece, this cool herb gets its name from the nymph Menthe. So beautiful was Menthe that the god Pluto fell in love with her on sight. Naturally, this didn't thrill his wife Persephone, who turned Menthe into a plant, so that she would be trod upon for the rest of time. Distraught, Pluto tried to reverse the spell but found he could not. What he could do however was infuse Menthe, (the plant version) with the sweet aroma we all know and love.

In Victorian England, Peppermint was also prized for its ability to promote love, this time within the home. Stories maintain that in certain parts of Britain, it was common to add a few sprigs of peppermint to wash water, before mopping the floors to remove stains from wood, and cleanse the hearth from negativity.
