I am need to find either the seeds or the dried leaves of the plant, Hyptis crenata, or brazilian mint.
Does anyone know a source to purchase the dried leaves or the seeds?

As far as I know mint is not very good coming true from seed as it readily crosses with any other mint in the area.

Probably a difficult task but if you could find someone that has a plant that could give, trade or sell you some cuttings might work best.

gicore - Hyptis crenata, although called 'mint' is not a member of the genus Mentha so the problem with crossing doesn't arise.
