    Mountain Mint Plants

    Pycnanthemum Pycanthemoides

    Mountain Mint, a wild-growing mint plant often found along roadsides and woodlands, makes a great addition to your culinary or medicinal herb arsenal.

    Used in many of the same ways as other varieties from the Mint family, 'Mountain' is a great seasoning for meats, desserts, beverages and sauces. To retain the best flavor when drying, harvest the Mountain Mint plant's tops and leaves when it is in bloom. Lending a spicier taste than the fruitier strains like 'Apple' Mint and 'Orange' Mint, 'Mountain' makes a deliciously useful tea.

    In its tea form, the medicinal value of Mountain Mint is truly released. Great for treating cough and cold symptoms, this herb also aides in stomach problems and menstrual issues. The plant's ability to bring on menstrual cycles makes this herb unsafe for pregnant women, as it can lead to miscarriages if taken frequently or in high doses. Placing fresh crushed leaves directly on a toothache or wound is said to immediately help stop pain.

    'Mountain' Mint like many of its cousins, is also a natural insect repellent. Place it in your drawers, closets and rub it on your clothing to deter insects. You can also fill a small, breathable bag or pillow case with this and place it in the dryer with your clothes for a laundry load of fresh mint smelling clothing.

    Also considered highly important by many Native American tribes, 'Mountain' Mint was thought to bring people back from the dead. Tribes used to crush fresh mint and place it in the noses of those who were on the brink of death, claiming the powerful aroma would snap them back to life.

    Uses: 'Mountain' Mint is a delicious spicy mint that makes a great addition to meats, sauces and beverages. Medicinally it can be used to treat colds, coughs and menstrual problems. Pregnant women should not use this herb as it may result in miscarriages.

    Tips: 'Mountain' Mint makes a great addition to potpourri and its oils can be used to make a fragrant incense. Try crushing dried Mint and sprinkling it on your carpets as a natural room freshener or in your garden to repel insects!
