History of Verbena
Thanks to its native growing habitat, verbena has been a timeless part of human history. It was used in many ancient purifying rituals, in particular to cleanse altars after ceremonial rituals. The Xhosa people of South Africa drink tea made from the leaves of this plant, as well as use the leaves and oils to preserve meat. The ancient Greeks would place verbena on and beneath their pillows to encourage peace and tranquility.
