Lamiaceae. Southern Europe. H 0.4mxL 0.6m. Z7. Perennial. Good ground cover especially around water points and wet soils, with ornamental value for its light green foliage contrasting nicely with purple inflorescences. Pennyroyal was traditionally used in friction to rid pets of their parasites (repellent effect on ticks and fleas), and in humans to eliminate lice. This mint gives off a very strong smell, which makes it precious as a key source of essential oils, to scent linen and home, deodorising sheets and clothing, repel rats, mice and insects, but also as a condiment and infusion. Pennyroyal is renowned for its medicinal properties: antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, diaphoretic, emmenagogue, sedative, and stimulating, but the power of its active ingredients makes it toxic at low doses and requires precautions. A medicinal plant from the European Pharmacopoeia to have in your herbs garden. Available in bare root from March.
