In addition, it is used topically to treat gout, venomous bites, and mouth sores, as well as a flea-killing bath. Pennyroyal is prescribed for colds, pneumonia, and other respiratory problems despite serious safety concerns. Additionally, it treats stomach pains, gas, intestinal disorders, and liver and gallbladder issues.
How to Sow and Care for Pennyroyal
Pennyroyal is one of the easiest herbs to grow. Cuttings or seeds can be used to grow it. Light is necessary for seed germination; however, once the seed sprouts, it spreads. After the danger of frost has passed, plant the seeds outside in seedbeds. Mist the seedbed with water to moisten it after scattering the seed on the soil surface.
If the soil remains moist, germination should occur in weeks. Pennyroyal plants grow best in partial sunlight as long as they receive adequate moisture. However, they can also tolerate full sun. You will need at least six anhalf hours of sunlight per day for your pennyroyal plant.
Organically amended soil that is rich, moist, and free from weeds is ideal for their growth. Clay or sandy soil can also support their growth. It is essential to water it regularly to achieve the best results.
