Background

Lemon Verbena is a perennial shrub growing to 2–3 m high. The 8-cm-long, glossy, pointed leaves are slightly rough to the touch and emit a powerful scent reminiscent of lemon when bruised. While native to South America it will grow in a warm, sunny spot in a British garden and was introduced to Europe in the late 18th century. Soothing, calming, light and delicious lemon verbena has been used for countless generations, both old and young alike.

Uses

Lemon verbena is used for digestive disorders including indigestion, gas, colic, diarrhoea, and constipation. It is also used for agitation, joint pain, insomnia, asthma, colds, fever, haemorrhoids, varicose veins, skin conditions, and chills. Its soothing properties are especially useful when you have a sore throat, flu or just need to relax. It can be added to a bath (within a muslin cloth or a clean sock) to boost the relaxing effect of the hot water.

Precautions

Do not take if pregnant, if you have excessive menstrual bleeding or endometriosis. Seek medical advice if you have high blood pressure. Avoid large amounts if you have kidney conditions. Side effects may include skin irritation (dermatitis) but otherwise appears to be safe.
