Verbena, Honey Essential Oil
Light and airy The fragrance of honey verbena evokes the early morning, when everything is new and fresh.
An attractive addition to any apothecary for aromatherapy is this classy essential oil. This lovely pioneering plant easily acclimates to a wide range of climates and terrains and loves to thrive as a salve to disturbed soils. This perennial Australian herb has rich, creamy white flower heads that bloom freely, fragrant foliage, and a lemon scent that is evocative of a herbaceous lemon-meringue pie.

The faint of the aroma of verbena surrounded her, floating gently from Eleanor Butler’s silk gown and silken hair. It was the fragrance that had always been part of Ellen O’Hara, the scent for Scarlett of comfort, of safety, of love, of life before the War.”
~ Alexandra Ripley, Scarlett: The Sequel to Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind Part Two
“It was lemon verbena day, so the house was filled with a sweet-tart scent that conjured images of picnic blankets and white clouds shaped like true-love hearts.”
