Product Description

Pennyroyal Herb (c/s, Organically Grown)

Also Known As – Mentha pulegium,

Organically Grown Harvest - Our herbs is grown organically, fertilized with organic manure from our own chickens, rabbits and little kinder goats, and watered from our private well linked to the glaciers of  Mt.  Rainier and filtered into the Nisqually  River. Our herbs are hand picked, dried meticulously analyzed, test for freshness, aroma and taste before we package and deliver to you.

Overview - This species of Mint, a native of most parts of Europe and parts of Asia, is the Pulegium of the Romans, so named by Pliny from its reputed power of driving away fleas - pulex being the Latin for flea, hence the Italian pulce and the French puce. This name given the plant in ancient times has been retained as its modern specific name. It is sometimes known to the country-people as 'Run by the Ground' and 'Lurk in the Ditch,' from its manner of growth.

Medicinal Uses - Pennyroyal is used for colds, pneumonia, and other breathing problems. It is also used for stomach pains, gas, intestinal disorders, and liver and gallbladder problems. Women use it to start or regulate their menstrual periods. Pennyroyal is also used to control muscle spasms, cause sweating, and increase urine production. Some people use it as a stimulant and to counteract weakness.

  • Pennyroyal is applied to the skin to kill germs, keep insects away, and treat skin diseases. It is also used topically for gout, venomous bites, and mouth sores; and as a flea-killing bath.

Preparations - Usually as a tea but sometimes in extract and seldom in capsules. Topically the oil or fresh herb can be used as an insect repellent, but in some cases may induce a rash or similar reaction.

 

Preparation and Dosage are as follows: Infusion: pour a cup of boiling water onto 1-2 teaspoonfuls of the dried leaves and let infuse for 10-15 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day. Tincture: take 1-2 ml of the tincture three times a day.

 

Precautions - Should never be taken by women that are pregnant or think they may be pregnant.
