 Harts Pennyroyal  (Mentha cervina) Herb in 9cm Pot

As a member of the Mint family Harts Pennyroyal will thrive anywhere, preferring moist partly shady areas, and is easy to grow from cuttings or replanting of runners. It is native to the western Mediterranean from France south to the Azores and Algeria. It should be kept well watered to ensure good leaf production. Harts Pennyroyal will produce small flower spikes in mid to late summer, and grow 30-60cm tall.

Herb Usage

A tea made from the leaves of most mint species has traditionally been used in the treatment of fevers, headaches, digestive disorders and various minor ailments. The leaves are harvested as the plant comes into flower and can be dried for later use. The essential oil in the leaves is antiseptic, though it is toxic in large doses.
