Penny-royal Calamint.

Botanical name: 

Calamintha odore pulegii.

A little plant of the same kind with the other, and found in the same places, but more common. It is a foot high: the stalks are robust and firm; the leaves are small, and of a whitish green colour, and more hairy than in the other: the flowers are small and white, with a tinge of purple; the plant grows more erect and is less branched than the other; and it has a very strong and not a very agreeable smell: the other is strong scented and pleasant.

This is to be preserved dry as the other, and taken in the same manner. It is excellent against stopages of the menses, and, if taken constantly, will bring them to a regular course.

The Family Herbal, 1812, was written by John Hill.
