Pennyroyal is an herb that has been traditionally used for treating several health concerns. Its unique properties make it a potent antispasmodic, digestive aid, and insect repellent.
Pennyroyal essential oil is known to provide relief from menstrual cramps when massaged topically on the affected area. It also aids in digestion by promoting bile secretion and has been used as a natural remedy for bloating, gas, and stomach pain.
Additionally, pennyroyal can repel insects with its strong scent, making it useful in reducing mosquito bites during outdoor activities. However, it's important to use pennyroyal in moderation because excessive consumption or application can lead to serious side effects such as liver or kidney damage.
