I purchased it 1 month ago (1st picture), it had some small marks on some leaves but the seller told me it was nothing to worry about...

1-2weeks later (2nd picture), the spots had spread out, and I identified what seemed to be aphids. I tried doing a soapy water spray treatment but it didn't seem to help much. I decided to cut off two healthier sprigs for propagation (they're doing ok for now).

Currently, most leaves have ashy markings, with some falling off.
Is this all because of the aphids? Is it something else? And can I recuperate this mint?
If not, can I at least use the healthier-looking sprigs for propagation?

Thank you in advance for the help!
