Mountain Mint ~ Day 174

Mountain Mint is a very aromatic herb is used in potpourri or burned as incense. Placed in a muslin bag it can be used as bath additive, and is said to be very soothing to irritated skin. Will freshen laundry when used in the dryer. Thrown in a drawer or trunk it will not only freshen clothing and blankets, but keep moths away. Sprinkle on carpets to freshen the whole house and is said to be a good natural insecticide, the plant does repel insects and is good for use in the garden.

I have wild mint growing in my deck garden. I am not sure if it is Mountain mint, it grows wild everywhere here.  My neighbor had a big hedge beside her house. She gave me a cutting and I started it in my container garden. I keep it in the screen room and my cats nibble on it for their snack. I also use it in my hot tea with fresh honey. Takes me back to my Grandmother doing the same.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
