Product Details

Pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium), also known as pennyroyal, has a long history. Native to Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, pennyroyal's minty fragrance has been enjoyed for centuries. Historical records show its use in ancient Greece to flavor foods and wines, and early American colonists used it to repel insects. Pennyroyal's medicinal properties have also been explored throughout history. Traditionally used as a digestive aid and pain reliever, pennyroyal was also used in folk medicine to regulate menstruation and even as an abortifacient. However, it's important to note that pennyroyal is toxic and can cause serious health problems.

Pennyroyal's strong scent has led to its use as a natural insect repellent. Pennyroyal leaves can be placed around the house to deter pests, although safer alternatives are readily available.

Interestingly, pennyroyal also holds a place in some magical traditions. Certain practices incorporate pennyroyal into spells for strength, protection, and peace.
