Is there anything more uplifting than the fresh, clean scent of lemon? Also known as lemon beebrush, this herb gets its name from the distinct lemony smell emitted when its long, glossy leaves are rubbed. It’s this unique property that has led lemon verbena to be used as a flavoring for herbal teas as well as fish and poultry dishes.

History of Lemon Verbena
A flowering herb reaching a height of 2-3 meters with delightful lilac flowers that bloom in late spring, lemon verbena is native to western South America. Its distinct flavor and aroma was first documented by French botanist Philibert Commerson in 1767, who collected samples of the herb in beautiful Buenos Aires. It has since seen historical use in culinary applications, and is prized for its invigorating essential oil. Fragrance oils that express the citrus-herbal scent of lemon verbena have become a staple in perfumery and toiletry applications.
