Catmint

Believed to chase away nightmares when jelly conserve was made from the young tops and eaten. Also it was once placed in wine to treat bruises. It has grey-green leaves and pink, white or lilac flowers which bloom from midsummer. Viewed with some suspicion as cats are heavily attracted by its aroma - hence its name.
