Organic and wild, hand picked, pennyroyal (Φλισκούνι – Mentha pulegium ) from the mountains of Epirus, North West Greece.
Pennyroyal is anti-inflammatory, anti-diarrheal and helps with muscle spasms. It said to be effective against bronchial cramps and is used particularly in folk medicine against asthma and generally for healthy respiratory organs, especially amongst the elderly.
Pennyroyal can also be used as a culinary herb. It has a subtle minty fragrance and can be used to give an edgy, fresh sweetness that reminds of spearmint to your dishes.
Pennyroyal is a natural emmenagogue and should be avoided during pregnancy.
