Verbena Lemon Essential Oil
This Verbena Lemon type is a more cost effective than the true Lemon Verbena (Lippia Citriodora) but has a very similar smell.
A pale yellow or green liquid with a sweet, green scent with notes of lemon and citronella that blends well with palmarosa, neroli, sandalwood, geranium, bergamot, lavender and patchouli. Frequently used in aromatherapy, body care products, hair care, and cold process and melt and pour soap making.
Latin name: Thymus Hiemalis (also known as Spanish Verbena)
Uses: It is reputedly helpful for softening the skin and reducing puffiness. It may also help to repel insects.
Caution: Essential Oils are concentrated essences from plants, and should always be diluted before application to the skin to avoid irritation. We do not promote or encourage the use of Essential Oils internally but more for their aromatic and topical benefits. Ensure that you are aware of the contraindications of the oils that you are using and consult with your doctor or a certified aromatherapist if you have health concerns or questions.
