Pennyroyal is a medicinal perennial herb in the mint family. It has an intensely fresh mint aroma. It can be used for tea or tincture, although not for use during pregnancy. Great for soothing colds and flus. Can also be used as an insect repellant. Harvest the aerial parts when the plant is in bloom in early summer.

It is a low growing, creeping herb with light purple flowers that are irresistible to bees and other pollinators. Some people say it is drought-tolerant, but I have not found that in my garden. Being in the mint family it will spread, but not as aggressively as other mints. Grow in containers to keep it contained if you're worried about it spreading.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow in spring or fall, or start in flats or pots in spring and transplant out after frost. Seeds are very tiny!
