Among the most well-known and popular herbs, mint (from the Ancient Greek Minthe), with its cool aroma and characteristic peppery flavor, awakens and stimulates the senses. Mint is also known for its beneficial properties: in the Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest and most important medical scrolls of ancient Egypt, mint is mentioned as “calming for the stomach”. That is why it is widely used to relieve gastrointestinal discomfort, such as indigestion and bloating because it facilitates digestion
Our mint (Mentha x piperita) is grown with the most modern biological practices and with respect for the natural environment in the Thessalian plain. The selection of the appropriate variety that in this area finds the ideal natural conditions, in combination with our careful practices, results in a mint of exceptional quality, rich in active ingredients.
