Aztec Sweet Herb (Lippia dulcis) is a quick growing ground cover that sends out horizontal runners, and is a perennial herb native to Mexico and Central America. It is from the Verbenaceae family and may also be known by the common names such as Mexican Lippia, Bushy Lippia and Honey Herb. It grows well in areas that receive full sunlight and requires a warm climate with soil pH ranging between 6.0 - 8.0. 

It's leaves are extremely sweet, known to be 1500 times sweeter than ordinary sugar. It's important to consult a medical professional before consuming this plant because Aztec Sweet Herb's chemical make up contains a lot of camphor and in large doses camphor can be toxic to the nervous system. Hence why this plant is not marketed commercially as a sweetener.
