Words by Anny Schneider

In Latin America where it grows abundantly in the wild, this plant and its essential oil are traditionally used as antipasmodic, digestive and parasiticidal.

Because of its richness in carvacrol, menthone and swordfish, its effects and smell very similar to those of pennyroyal, it is often called "poleo".

It is strictly reserved for external use, ideally diluted in a vegetable oil in local application, against digestive, menstrual and pulmonary infections.

⇒ Avoid it absolutely in children and pregnant women.

Origin of this essential oil

This essential oil of wild picking muña from Peru is distilled from the leaves of the plant.


En Amérique latine  où elle pousse abondamment à l'état sauvage, cette plante et son huile essentielle sont utilisées traditionnellement comme antipasmodique, digestif et parasiticide.

À cause de sa richesse en carvacrol, menthone et pullégone, ses effets et son odeur très proches de ceux de la  menthe pouliot, on la nomme souvent ''poleo''.

On la réserve à l'usage externe, idéalement diluée dans une huile végétale en application locale, contre les douleurs digestives, menstruelles et les infections pulmonaires.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.

⇒ L'éviter absolument chez les enfants et les femmes enceintes.
