Lemon Verbena is generally acknowledged to be the most strongly scented and intense of the lemon scented plants. This minty-citrus scented leaf produces a flavor that has been likened to a cross between licorice and camphor. Lemon verbena has been used in everything from ice cream flavoring to an oregano or pepper substitute. This herb is stronger than most other lemon-scented herbs, so it's advised to use it sparingly as a flavoring in both sweet and savory dishes or in teas and other beverages.
This bright, sweet herb has a wide range of uses beyond culinary, it is used in health and beauty products and for its medicinal properties. Lemon verbena is also gentle in its action with its high concentration of powerful antioxidant compounds that provide ease of digestion, help to reduce inflammation and strengthens muscles just to name a few. Its tea gives a powerful boost to many of the organs and metabolic processes.
