Product Description

Lemon Verbena, Whole Leaf 

Also Known As – Aloysia triphylla, Lippia citriodora

Organically Grown USA

Overview - Lemon verbena is native to South America, but has spread too many places around the world. This sun-loving perennial has a very strong lemon scent. When used in cooking it has a strong lemon flavor that is sweeter and more potent than lemon balm. When it flowers, it has bunches of very small white blossoms.

Medicinal Uses – Internally, Lemon verbena is a little similar to lemon balm in that it aids the digestion and has sedative qualities. It also is effective against Candida albicans (yeast) infections. Verbena can soothe bronchial and nasal congestion, indigestion, flatulence, nausea, stomach cramps and heart palpitations. This herb is relaxing and fights infection. It is good for fevers and can be used as an antibacterial wash. Other uses for verbena include fighting flu, asthma, menstrual cramps, vertigo, diarrhea, restlessness, sinus congestion and neuralgia. Externally, Lemon Verbena can be used in the bath. It can also be used as a compress for puffiness around the eyes and as a gargle for sore throats and tonsillitis. It is also a nice addition to herbal mouthwashes.

Other Uses – Verbena is used in cooking to flavor sorbets, salad dressings, beverages, fish and poultry. The leaves are also used for perfume blends. It is used in many cosmetics and aromatics like potpourri.

Herbs to Combine/Supplement - May be mixed with herbs like lavender, lemongrass, marshmallow leaf and meadowsweet as a digestive aid herbal tea. A relaxing herbal tea formula may be lemon verbena, chamomile and mint.

Parts Used - The leaves and flowering tops are the portions of the plant used medicinally.
