Small flowers in the garden – a series #14

This small purple plant appears in the grass and I suspect also in the garden where it grows taller and spreads out.   Any suggestions as to its name please?

    not chamomile – thought it might be Pennyroyal but probably not. What kind of smell do the leaves have? Have noticed this around myself but not bothered to find out its name…

      The lawns were mowed yesterday so my flower has gone for now. I will go and have another look around the garden and check out the leaves. I wonder if it browns off once mature and then seeds as there are similar looking flower heads about.

    Yes, self-heal is right. I was shown this some years ago on a plant walk. I always enjoy this little purple flower. You can rub it on cuts to help them heal.
