now we just need the recipe
A decoction of pennyroyal can be made by boiling 1 part plant with 20 parts 
water in a covered non-metal container for about 15 minutes.  Other recipes I 
have use oil of pennyroyal, but I have never tried to extract the oil.  Anyway, 
just cool the solution and pour into a spray bottle.  On a lighter note, one 
of my older herbals suggests diluting oil of pennyroyal with lard or grease 
and rubbing it on; however, I would not advise doing that. <LOL>
