The Menthe Pouliot or Pouliot (Mentha Pulegium L.) is a herbaceous plant of the Lamiacae family (Labiés), originally fromEurope, North Africa and Temperate Asia. Known since European Antiquity as Medicinal Plant, it was not attached to the Mints as in the modern era.

After being highly estimated until Renaissance, its consumption even in the form ofInfusion, is now not recommended due to the presence of a very hepatotoxic component, the Pulégone, can sometimes be present in a high concentration1.
