HarmonyRestore the harmony you've been missing with a balanced blend of sweet basil, mint, rosemary and sage.
From lamb garnished with mint jelly to a thirst-quenching mojito, mint just makes everything taste better. Not only that, but the herb has health benefits galore and epic concentrations of antioxidants. Add a few chopped mint leaves to your chocolate chip cookie dough, for example, and you just might improve digestion, increase cognitive function and fight fatigue in one fell swoop. Add class to your next dinner party by offering mint as a palate cleanser; the menthol-like flavor activates the salivary glands in your mouth. This explains why the herb is used so often in cooking, and why it had to be the centerpiece of our cooling Wild Mint Vape.
Savory, earthy sage has a long and varied history. It was used in ancient times to ward off evil, prevent snakebites, and increase female fertility. Far beyond simply seasoning sausages and cornbread stuffing, sage leaves can be used as a natural pest repellent or a room deodorizer. Indigenous cultures light sage bundles to clear stagnant or negative energy, and in England, it’s considered one of the essential herbs—immortalized along with parsley, rosemary and thyme in the song Scarborough Fair. We love its velvety leaves and nostalgic aroma, almost as much as you’ll love each peppery puff of Wild Mint.
According to legend, the Virgin Mary once spread her blue cloak over a white-blossomed rosemary bush while she was resting, and the flowers turned blue. The shrub became known as the "Rose of Mary," and was considered sacred to many ancient cultures. The bitter, astringent taste and charred, woody fragrance of rosemary accents barbecued meats and roasted veggies but also makes a bold and surprising impression in a Pomegranate Gin Fizz. The herb was worn during wedding ceremonies in the Middle Ages, giving rosemary the reputation of being a love charm; nowadays, it’s believed to improve memory. From where we stand, that’s more than enough reason to indulge in our Wild Mint Vape.
Sweet basil smells exactly that, sweet and reminiscent of anise. From garnishing a Caprese salad to enhancing strawberry sorbet, it is a beloved addition to a chef’s garden. The name basil means “royal” or “kingly” plant, so its no wonder that cultures throughout the world hold the herb in such high esteem. African legend claims that basil protects against scorpions, while in Europe, it is often placed in the hands of the departed, to ensure a safe journey into the afterlife. Potted basil is given as a gift between sweethearts in Portugal, while a thriving plant featured in a Mexican storefront is thought to bring wealth to that business. Come for the serendipity, stay for every sweetly pungent breath of Wild Mint.
