Verbena

Lemon verbena, a perennial shrub known scientifically as Aloysia triphylla, contains an essential oil that aromatherapists value for its restorative effects. The plant originated in the South American countries of Argentina and Chile but is cultivated today in other countries with warm and temperate climates worldwide, according to “Medicinal Plants of the World.” In addition to its aromatherapeutic properties, the plant possesses a wide array of other chemical compounds. Lemon verbena helps to elevate the mood in symptoms of mild depression. Due to its pleasing lemon aroma and taste, it is used to relax the nervous system.
