No 4 Lemon Verbena


Lemon Verbena is a woody shrub with narrow, glossy green leaves. Known as the “Queen of the Aromatic Herbs” and native to South America, Lemon Verbena is a fresh, lemon scented herb that has a long history of medicinal and culinary use. Lemon Verbena was traditionally used to make as soothing tea to aid digestion and to alleviate colds, flu and break a fever. It was also made into an ointment or a poultice to disinfect wounds and speed up healing, and to relieve joint pain brought on by inflammation.

In herbal lore, Lemon Verbena symbolizes romance and sensitivity and was used to transmit messages between lovers.

Lemon Verbena produces a bright yellow cup with a citrusy aroma. Its flavor is lemony and has a smooth yet almost creamy taste.
  • Bodily Effect: Lemon Verbena is used to stop muscle spasms, as a fever reducer and sedative, for indigestion, and to increase appetite.
  • Emotional Effect: Lemon Verbena has a mildly calming effect on the nervous system and help relieve muscle tension. These calming and tension releasing properties aid in reducing nerves, anxiety, and stress. 
  • Spiritual Effect: Lemon Verbena is used for spiritual enlightenment. 
In ancient time of the Incas, Lemon Verbena was used for its medicinal properties. It was brought from South America to Europe by Spanish explorers and named by Philibert Commerson, the French botanist, as Aloysia triphylla. Gomez Ortega and Antonio Paulau y Verdera provided the botanical name Aloysia citriodora. In Spain, Lemon Verbena was known as Verba Luisa.

"Full of protection, love and charms, Lemon Verbena also boosts the energies and powers of other plants."
