Lemon Verbena (Aloysia triphylla) is a fragrant shrub native to South America, particularly Argentina, Chile, and Peru. Brought to Europe by the Spanish and Portuguese, it was initially cultivated for its essential oil, used in perfumes and cosmetics. Victorians particularly enjoyed its lemony scent and incorporated dried leaves into potpourri.

Lemon Verbena's culinary uses are extensive. The leaves boast a powerful lemon flavor that can enhance a variety of dishes. Steeped in hot water, they create a refreshing lemon-scented tea. The leaves can also be used fresh, adding a lemony zest to fish, salads, and steamed vegetables. Some cultures even consider it a medicinal plant, with uses for calming digestion and as an insecticide.

In hoodoo, Lemon Verbena is associated with love magic and purification. The leaves are said to be helpful for stopping unwanted dreams and attracting romantic partners and can also be used in ritual baths for cleansing purposes.
