The organic mint has been part of the human diet since the time of the Roman empire! Aromatic chemicals and essential oils extracted from the mint leaves are often used in cosmetic and medical industry. Mint is rich source of vitamins A, C and B2. It also contains valuable minerals such as calcium, copper and magnesium. But it is also thought of as an invader specie because of its ability to reproduce quickly and conquer new habitats easily.
