Lemon Verbena, or as I first encountered it in France years ago, as Verveine in the form of an herbal tea... A lovely lemony fragrance and a delicate taste, I still love it today, I honestly can say that it's the only herbal tea I enjoy, I like mine with a little honey.

Good for steeping, but like so many other herbs steeped in legend. One legend holds that verveine protects people from vampires.

Apt it is then, with the the current resurgence of the Vampire, that Lampe Berger have introduced a new fragrance 'Zest of Verveine', not only to combat evil smells and germs but to ward off vampires too! Handy that....
