Mentha arvensis L. is also known as corn mint. The leaves may be eaten raw in salads or used to make tea. The essential oils are used to flavour desserts.
This species is believed to have medicinal properties. Native Americans use the leaves as medicine for kidney diseases. The mint fragrance also serves as a repellent for insects and rodents. Some granaries place the leaves near the grain to deter rodents from eating them.
