Pennyroyal is a traditional culinary herb, folk remedy, and abortifacient. The essential oil of pennyroyal is used in aromatherapy, although it is also high in pulegone, a highly toxic volatile organic compound affecting liver and uterine function. Even though pennyroyal oil is extremely poisonous, people have relied on the fresh and dried herb for centuries as a safe and effective agent.

Pennyroyal was commonly used as a cooking herb by the Greeks and Romans who sometimes flavored their wine with pennyroyal. Although it was commonly used for cooking in the Middle Ages, it gradually fell out of use as a culinary herb and is seldom used as such today. The fresh or dried leaves the plant were used to flavor pudding. Early settlers in colonial Virginia used dried pennyroyal to eradicate pests.
