Verbena was introduced to Europe in the 18th century. True Verbena oil is obtained by steam distillation from the flowering stalks of the plant and is a lovely greeny-yellow colour. It is native to Chile and Peru and found semi-wild in the Mediterranean region as well as Kenya and China. The oil is mainly produced in France and North Africa.
Verbena is an excellent digestive stimulant useful in all kinds of digestive upsets and for congestion of the liver. Regular massage with Verbena can help to reduce stress levels and anxiety. Please note that Verbena can cause sensitisation and photosensitization.
