Soften your breath and listen to the sound of air releasing from your lungs. When your chest aches with coughs and congestion, Verbena can restore gentle breathing and promote overall health.
Native to South Africa, Verbena is a woody fragrant shrub that grows to about 3 to 7 feet and has lemon-scented leaves and small white flowers that develop into small fruit. Verbena is also known as the fever tree, wild tea, and lemon bush. The herb is steam distilled to extract the dark yellow essential oil.
