Verbena (lippia citriodora) a deciduous shrub 5-16 feet high, is native to Chile and Argentina, but is also grown in Kenya and China and around the Mediterranean region. One of its popular uses, especially in Europe, is as a refreshing household tea made from steeping the dried leaves.
Fresh and lively verbena essential oil has delightful green and lemony-fruity notes. This vibrant oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory and can give a buoyant lift to moods. It is indicated for stress, insomnia, depression and nervous fatigue.
