Flavor Profile - NOT for internal use.
Pennyroyal is a member of the mint family once used by the ancient Greeks and Romans to flavor wine and pudding for which is also became known as "pudding grass."
Early American colonists used the dried herb to discourage fleas and other pests, a purpose for which the herb is largely limited to today due to the presence of toxic compounds in the plant.
Certain organic compounds responsible for the aromatic properties of the plant also make it unsuitable for internal use. For example, although the compound menthofuran is used in the fragrance industry, it is highly toxic to the liver.
