Mint

Reputed to be able to heal the pain caused by wasp and bee stings. In Ancient Greece the custom was to perfume all parts of the body with a different scent...mint was used for the arms! It has lilac and cream flowers in the summer and is extremely aromatic wrinkly round leaves. It was also viewed as a symbol of hospitality, so much so that tables were rubbed down with it before the table was prepared.
