Organic Wild Penny Royal
The aromatic wild mint, also known as pennyroyal, is one of the most fragrant herbs of nature. It belongs to the large Lamiaceae family and the Mentha genus.The ancient Greeks believed that wild mint stimulates the nervous system and the heart. It was traditionally used as a culinary herb and a historical folk medicine. An essential oil made with pennyroyal is still used by aromatherapists for topical application. However, the oil is extremely high in a compound called pulegone which is highly toxic and is known to cause damage to the liver and affect uterine function.
The reason that pennyroyal tea is still popular is mainly because of its relaxant effects. It can also help improve digestion and relieve stomach pain and upset. It can also be applied topically to the skin and is known to have a variety of medicinal uses.
