Historical Data: Mastrante was given its botanical name by the Scottish botanist Philip Miller (1691-1771) and the British plant taxonomist N.E. Brown (1849-1934). As a result, in the scientific literature it is listed as: “Lippia abla (Miller or Mill.) N.E. Brown.” In Brazil, it is called “erva cidreira do campo,” which means “lemon balm of the field.” The aromatic shrub grows in southern Texas, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The leaves of Mastrante are used to flavor foods, most notably molé sauces from Oaxaca, Mexico.
