Mint can be bought from your local grocery store, usually in plastic contains to keep the Mint fresh. But you can also grow Mint yourself.
Due to the fact that Mint is a green juice, you will find it beneficial to have no more than about ¼ of your juice consisting of green juice.
If you are like me and grow some of your own herbs such as Mint, then you like to take advantage of what you have. I add Mint because I like Mint. Since the leaves are small, you won't be producing a lot of juice. I use Mint just to add extra flavor.
I add enough Mint to create the flavor I like. You will need to test how many leaves of Mint bring the flavor you like.
