Verbena

Aloysia citrodora Palau ou Aloysia triphylla (L’Herit.) Britt. ou Lippia citriodora H.B.K.

Lemon verbena or verbena lemongrass, native to South America, has the same properties as the officinal verbena. Verbena officinalis L. bears the name of the herb Venus “herba veneris”, goddess of love, seduction and beauty among the Romans. The Celts also sacralized this plant pure as mistletoe, presented as the power to cure all ills.

The lemon verbena is distinguished by its very pleasant lemony fragrance. It is often used to make all types of scented culinary preparations, in liqueurs or simply in soft, pleasant and digestive infusion. It has been widely studied by botanists since the eighteenth century who gave it different names: the French Augustin Lippi and Charles Louis L’Héritier de Brutelle, the Spaniard Antonio Palau y Verdera and the Germans Humboldt, Bonpland and Kunth.

Originating from Asia, Europe and North Africa, mints are aromatic plants spread around the world.

Its leaves have a remarkable and commonly appreciated flavor. It is not uncommon to find mints in all types of cuisine, liqueurs and drinks. Peppermint has a powerful fragrance that is intended for use in digestive infusion.
