Mint - The amazing Multi-purpose Plant

Mint is easy to grow and easy to recognize.

It smells just like Wrigley's gum.

It is NOT easy to control, though.
It will take over the garden if you let it.

Mint has many culinary uses.

We make mint iced tea by steeping fresh leaves in hot water or we'll add dried mint to other herbal blends for hot tea in the winter.

Mint jelly is usually served with lamb.

Mint sugar adds a special touch on top of cranberry muffins.

Then there's a watermelon, feta and mint salad recipe that I can't wait to try this summer.

I even made Creme de Menthe last summer!

Needless to say, I use it year round!

Magically, Mint is used for quite a few reasons.

Mint was Sacred to the Druids.
It is used for Money, Luck, Love, Healing. Protection, Travel and Divination

Odd Trivia: During the Middle Ages, cheese makers discovered that sprinkling mint around their cheese piles would keep rats out of their storeroom. 

I discovered that by planting Mint in my front garden I've kept ants from coming in the front door.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This year, my mint is growing abundantly and I'll be able to offer more in the shop, I've already replenished our own personal stores.

Depending on the rain, and we've had a lot, I'll probably cut it back 2-3 more times before I let it go to flower.
Like I said in the beginning, It's really easy to grow but it does take over a large space!

If you don't have the time or space or inclination to grow your own mint but you'd still like to have some on hand for spells and rituals, I do carry it in the shop You can find it here: Dried Mint Leaves
