Redmint is a naturally occurring hybrid indigenous throughout the overlapping native regions of peppermint and spearmint grow that can be found all over the world. However, in Israel, this plant grows wild from the desert to the sea and smells amazingly deeper than the plants from Asia, USA, and Europe. Often chopped redmint is used in Israeli and Arab cuisines.

Mint plants have been in use for centuries. In the Ebers Papyrus from Egypt, which dates to about 1500 BCE, Mint is mentioned by name as well as in the Hebrew Bible. Mint was cultivated by the ancient Israelites and in the land of Egypt.
The synagogues in Israel 2000 years ago often at Shavuot had a variety of sprigs of mint sprinkled on the floor, so that the fragrance arose when they walked on it. Shaw mentions this in Plants in the Missouri Botanical Garden (1884). Some Sephardic synagogues still do this today in Israel.
Mint represented wealth and abundance. Malachi 3:10 Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. It was customary for Israelites would hang mint to fragrance their homes along with lavender nard.
The strong mint aroma of this essential oil is sweet and warm wrigly’s gum aroma and is often used to release negative energy, provide spiritual openness, and promote a positive overall mood.
