Hi and Welcome! once again. Does it have square stems?

Welcome!

When you say it's aromatic, do you mean the leaves or have you seen flowers on it previously which are scented?

If the leaves are aromatic, can you describe what they smell like?

Also what Daisy asked, are the stems square?

The smaller leaves are square but as they get bigger they become elongated, and the smell is similar to mint/oregano. Will update when I can check the stems, dark here now.

No, doesn't flower like that, and leaf structure is different

I agree It could be. I know it as a wildflower and it was not shown growing in Maine. Did some more looking and it can be purchased. Blinking

That would probably help if we saw a picture of the flowers.
