I have a peppermint plant that is thriving and since it's in a pot, I'm thinking of bringing it inside to keep in the rat room. I'm hoping it might make the room smell fresh, but I don't want it to harm my rats. I also was wondering if maybe they could have a bit of peppermint.

Thanks ratfriends. :)

I gave my girls a small amount of fresh peppermint leaves (they each got a bit of a nibble). Mixed reactions... Eevee seemed to really like it, but everyone else was happy with just a taste. Can't say I blame them. A little goes a long way, lol.

Dinoclor, I use leaves of my peppermint to make tea. It's perfectly edible. I even chew on the leaves every once in a while. It doesn't taste good at the time, but it leaves a very refreshing feel. I've never heard of pennyroyal mint, but I found this about it.
