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 used for the treatment of colds, coughs, insomnia and sore throats.
In Ancient Greece they added pennyroyal in their bath water because they appreciated its nice aroma and rich essential oil. In folk medicine, inter alia, it was used by smokers for the “cleansing” of the lungs.
Enjoy it as a delicious, highly aromatic and refreshing drink.
