Wild mint is one of the three sacred herbs of the druids. It has long been used in healing teas and potions. Rubbing a mint leaf on your head is said to relieve headaches. In Ancient Greece Mint was used in funeral rites. It was said that Minthe, a river nymph, who was obsessed with Hades of the Underworld, was about to seduce him when she was discovered by Persephone. To punish her Queen Persephone turned her into the wild mint plant we know today to be treaded on by everyone. Having mercy on her however, Hades made her sweet smelling and lovely tasting so she would still be loved.
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
