mint

A strongly scented herb used in cooking, medicinally as a carminative and stomachic, and on floors of synagogues as an air-freshener. In (Matt 23:23 and Luke 11:42), paying tithes on inexpensive mint symbolizes attention to details of ritual law as opposed to the “weightier matters” of justice and mercy and faith.
