Just got into a new home and trying to figure out all of the plants. Is this some sort if mint? It definitely has a herbious smell.

I agree with Danita, Salvia coerulea (guaranitica is a synonym) http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Salvia+coerulea&s...

And Welcome! from me too!

My vote is on the salvia, too. Welcome!
