Organic Lemon Verbena Leaf, c/s (Aloysia citriodora)
Botanical Name: Aloysia citriodora
Common Names: Lemon Verbena, Lemon Beebrush
Lemon verbena, sometimes called vervain, is generally acknowledged to be the most strongly scented and intense of the lemon scented plants. The scent has moved writers to poetry and prose in an effort to describe its essence, which is both crisp and relaxing at the same time. Because of its scent, lemon verbena is used in making perfumes as well as a flavoring in baking, jelly and preserving. The flavor of lemon verbena has been likened to a cross between licorice and camphor, and it is widely used as an herbal flavoring to replace oregano, particularly in light protein dishes. When dried, it has a toned-down scent and flavor ideal for lemon verbena tea, herbal infusion blends, and potpourri.
