Uses Although in the modern day, pennyroyal could probably not stand a chance against RAID or other cans of mosquito repellant or bug killer, the flowering herb does have many utilities I would like to at least speak of due to its usefulness. Insect Repellant: I have personally used pennyroyal essential oil as a way of preventing mosquitos from biting me, as they are very prone, and have had a good amount of success. Since I wear it on the skin, it has never bothered me, but I would not recommend contacting any hand that touches or rubs the oil to the mouth, for the oil can be toxic even in very small doses. Aromatherapy: Pennyroyal has a very potent mint scent to it. This can be used in aromatherapy to help clear up a cold, flu, or just making a place smell really, really clean. Pest Control: Although I have used pennyroyal essential oil before to clear out some unwanted fleas brought in by my dog, I would advise caution on where you dabble it and how much. Since the oil is toxic to humans and animals, it is personally recommended that you use it only on items or in ways that no one or furry family member will ingest. Otherwise, it really does the trick in sending those fleas packing! They can’t stand the stuff. A Word of Caution Pennyroyal was used famously in the past as a menstrual flow stimulant and an abortifacient or abortion inducer. It was usually turned into a tea, or some women have even taken the essential oil down directly. This is most certainly NOT RECOMMENDED, as multiple deaths have been attributed to an overdose of even a minute quantity of this plant’s oil. When it comes to uses involving this plant’s potent properties taken internally, I cannot recommend any use other than the three listed above, for as of now I have not heard of any safe dosage amount to be used by people of this plant Final Note If one were to ask me about what I thought in regards to Pennyroyal, I would say that I think it is one of the most intriguing members of the mint family. Its strong scent and potency as well as the curious history it has had through its uses have made it a plant that is quite memorable. Around my home, I frequently carry a bottle of pennyroyal essential oil in my medicine cabinet since discovering it during my days of studying ethnobotany in college. I have found it to be very useful at times, and if you are a fan of natural replacements for things such as bug spray, this might be a convenient plant oil for you.
