Mentha (Mint) is a genus of flowering plants in the Labiatae (Lamiaceae) family. Mints are aromatic, almost exclusively perennial, and rarely annual. Mint and its medicinal uses have been cited in many traditional manuscripts and since Mentha species have different medical properties and recognition of these species considering the characteristics mentioned in traditional manuscripts is difficult, we decided to elaborate the corresponding names in traditional medicine and characteristics of 4 native and one hybrid common species of Mentha in Iran including M. spicata, M. longifolia, M. pulegium, M. aquatica and M. × piperita. The results of this work help the traditional medicine researchers to recognize themedicinal properties specified in traditional manuscripts for each Mentha species.
Keywords: Medicinal Plants, Mentha, Nomenclature, Traditional Medicine.
