Aug 28th Lammas to Mabon
There is a Greek Myth that a river nymph named Mentha (or Mintha) was transformed into the herb Mint after a bad, tumultuous affair with Hades. Todays planetary ruler is Mercury and the Greeks & Romans dedicated mint to Mercury. Mint has many useful properties outside of just a breath freshner, it has the powers to relax the body and clear the head while encourage rational thinking. Today, incorporate mint into your tea or meal. If you are not a fan of mint, wear a splash or orange in honor of Mercury. That splash of orange will have a similar calming effect that mint has.
