True Lemon Verbena essential oil is rare and costly. Leaves produce little essential oil during distillation. Our organic Lemon Verbena from France has green lemon notes and sophisticated floral and mint back notes.  Beware of less costly types and those absent of GC/MS analysis since Lemon Verbena essential oil is often adulterated.

Some of the aromatherapy benefits of Lemon Verbena are anti-inflammatory, antiviral and relaxing sedative oil for stress, depression, and insomnia. Lemon Verbena is also a powerful anti-inflammatory suited to skin care for reducing puffiness.  Lemon Verbena is a powerful room freshener that helps remove stale odors when diffused or added in room freshener sprays.

Contraindications: Possible sensitization; phototoxic due to citral level.  Imitations and made up replicas have resulted in Lemon Verbana earning a bad reputation as a skin sensitizer. It is often adulterated or extended with less costly essential oils; lemon, lemongrass, citronella, and may chang (to name a few).   Our genuine Lemon Verbena contains citral and should, like all high citral essential oils be well diluted in products intended for skin application.  Some sources say it shouldn't be used at all, while other well-known and respected aromatherapy authors write otherwise.  Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt writes that properly diluted ‘genuine oil of Lemon Verbena’ does not irritate the skin and is a good reason not to use industrial quality oils therapeutically. Shirley and Len Price are aligned with Schnaubelt.  There is a clear division concerning the safe use of Lemon Verbena among aromatherapy professionals. Prudent use in skin care should, in our opinion, include only using authentic Lemon Verbena properly diluted followed by performing a skin patch test.

Light Lemon
I was pleasantly surprised by this smell - it has a lemony citrus to it without being overwhelming. I do think it's a bit pricey, but if used sparingly, it will be a fresh addition to any blend!

Very pretty
This is a very pretty, delicate and elegant lemon/citrus essential oil. It is a tad on the pricey side so depending on how you plan to use it, may chang (litsea) makes a great substitution.
