don't use it for flea control on any pets that are pregnant. It causesd abortion

Thanks for posting that. I totally forgot to mention that. :eek:


Also if anyone uses this for tea, etc.; be careful with it especially if the person drinking it, etc. is expecting as it can cause abortions just like mentioned it does for pets/animals.

It's a good companion plant for roses. Aside from that, it is not recommended for use as a tea, or for medicinal use. Too dangerous, and its effects are accumulative. Those 'abortion' rumours are true, both for animals and humans, and it can cause convulsions in animals and humans, too - in pregnant humans, the mere smell of it may be enough. I don't suggest using it on your pets for flea control, either - far safer herbs available! I suggest you leave it well alone, or try to get rid of it.
