Satureja means Savory. Satureja viminea is a very minty savory with great possibilities. The small 1/2 to 1/4 inch oval, glossy, lime green foliage can match any spearmint for potency, and yet it is not saddled with Mintís aggressive nature. Even though it is frost sensitive it grows quite vigorously in one season and can be moved indoors. It grows well in a pot and survives inside with good light. Legend says that the mint plant grows into a tree only after a great deal of time and care... This plant is used for making a famous Kama Sutra Luxury Mint Tree Bath Gel and Body Wash. This voluptuous cleansing liquid has a dedicated worldwide following of men and women who know bathing's true pleasure potential. The Kama Sutra Mint Tree Bathing Gels are a great way to turn the simple ritual of a bath or shower into a sensual interlude with these indulgent bathing gels. Mint Tree cools and tingles, invigorating the body and lifting the spirit. Satureja viminea is a large shrub or small tree with strongly scented mint leaves. Fragrance is pure and very intence. Very rare plant. Unlike a well-known peppermint herb, this plant has a woody stem and upright growth, though keeps a bushy shape. Can be trained into a small tree. Reaches 6-7 ft in height. Foliage strongly peppermint-scented. Leaf veins etched above. Corolla white, with very faint pinkish tinge, slightly irregular (the lower lobe about twice as large as others).
