Mint is a medicinal plant

Mint is a plant species, which includes 42 species. They all contain a lot of menthol and are very aromatic. Due to this, they are often used in medicine, cooking and horticulture.

Ironically, different types of mint have different odors, because they contain their own set of essential oils, and in general they possess various chemical compositions. But they are all very pleasing, and attract not only people but also animals. Suffice it to recall at least cat mint (her smell, by the way, causes physical pleasure in cats).

Different types of mint are used for various purposes. Some are good in cooking, while others are in perfumes, others are used at all for decorative purposes. But if we talk about the medicinal properties of the plant, then only one of its species – mint pepper – is stronger than the rest.
