It's hard to find a plant with a stronger citrus scent than lemon verbena. The slightest touch and the herb will exude its enchanting fragrance. In the kitchen, lemon verbena is often used to provide a burst of freshness in desserts such as blancmange, fruit salad and ice cream. A drink with melon, ginger ale and lemon verbena is the perfect companion for mild summer evenings. The fresh leaves contain many essential oils and stimulate both appetite and digestion.
Lemon Verbena is also especially appreciated by the French. Not only do they grow it as an ornamental shrub, they also use its essential oils in the production of lemon-scented perfumes and soaps like Savon de Marseille. Also, they traditionally enjoy a relaxing tea made from lemon verbena after meals.
