I just came across this great site, http://www.mintrubbing.org/, the “official site” of Romanian Mint Rubbing Association. Mint rubbing is:
mint rubbing (from Romanian “a freca menta”) – time and life management technique developed in Romania and practiced by millions of people worldwide.
This site is dedicated to provide you all the resources need to put to use the wonderful effects of rubbing mint.
