Organic Lemon Verbena
Medicinally, lemon verbena is used for digestive disorders like indigestion, diarrhea and constipation. It is helpful with joint pain, insomnia, asthma, colds, fevers, skin conditions and chills. It also has anti-Candida albicans properties.
In cooking, lemon verbena imparts a lemon flavor to any dish and is popular with fish and poultry dishes, marinades, salad dressings, jams, yogurt and drinks. There are many recipes online for making lemon verbena ice cream, sorbet, cocktails and muffins, among other treats. You can also dry the leaves for teas or add to soaps and cosmetics.
We love lemon verbena tea. It is so refreshing and so delicious hot or cold.
