The Greeks have long used Pennyroyal during initiation rites and amongst the Celts it was associated with the Great Mother. Place some Pennyroyal in your shoe when traveling to help prevent weariness and strength.

The translation of Pennyroyals old English name “Dweorge dwosel” means “Dwarf destroyer”. We are unsure of the reason why we would need protection from Dwarfs, but the evidence shows that it was once used as a protective herb. Dwarfs having a strong history in mining and blacksmithing, is there a connection there?
