In Greek mythology, Mintha (or Minthe) was a Naiad nymph beloved by Hades. When she claimed to be superior to Hades’ wife Persephone, the angry goddess transformed Mintha into the mint plant. Hades, trying to comfort her, gave Mintha a delightful and fragrant scent so all would appreciate her sweetness. Mintha subsequently became a sacred plant of Hades, and has come to be associated with metamorphosed beauty.
