Menthol Plant Cuttings


Sold Out

Calling all pet lovers, and those who live in humid places!  This herb is a must have!  This succulent is called Menthol or Vick's Plant (Plectranthus cylindraceus, 左手香).  It is a medicinal herb that's mainly used for applying topically as it contains antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.  It is helpful to bring relieve to topical skin irritations, digestive and respiratory systems.  What I mainly use this is to bring relieve to itchy mosquito and flea bites.

Some mistaken this herb to be Cuban Oregano, but the fragrant of each kind is very different.  Cuban Oregano will not bring relief to itchy bites as this plant would.

How to Use
This plant is mainly used as a topical.  Leaves are extracted to make essential oil, ointment, or massage fresh leaves to extract the green potent juice to directly apply onto skin to reduce itch and redness from mosquito and flea bites.

How to Grow
This perennial succulent can be grown in full sun or part shade.  It is drought tolerant, but will grow faster with daily watering. Protect from frost.

Shipping Info
To my friends in HAWAII -- Since shipping live plants to the State of Hawaii are required to be shipped bare root, or in soil-less medium, I cannot ship this plant since I cannot guarantee the life of it upon arrival.  Ashitaba has sensitive roots.  If you have any questions, please contact me.  Mahalo!

If you are purchasing more than 1 item please contact me for combined shipping rates. Thanks!
