Native to South America, Lemon Verbena or bee brush, has become a widely popular herb due to it's medicinal properties. It is thought to have the ability to reduce inflammation, boost the immune system and calm the stomach. Additionally it is used to reduce fevers, combat congestion as well as aid in weight loss. As the name suggests, it offers a citrus flavor that is herbaceous and more mild than that of lemongrass.
We recommend referring to a healthcare practitioner before using herbs and spices, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
