  • Product Description

    COMMON NAME
    Standardized: blue vervain
    Other: American blue vervain, wild hyssop

    BOTANICAL NAME
    Verbena hastata L.
    Plant Family: Verbenaceae

    OVERVIEW
    Verbena hastata is native to North America and is incredibly similar in appearance and properties to its European cousin Verbena officinalis, whom it is often mistaken for. It grows with wild abandon in the Great Plains section of America, and can be found elsewhere on prairies, in meadows, and open woodlands.

    PARTS USED
    Dried aerial portions.

    TYPICAL PREPARATIONS
    Traditionally used as a tea, but also as a tincture, syrup, foot soak or bath herb, salve or cream.

    SUMMARY
    Several of the names for vervain (Herb of the Cross, Herb of Grace, Holy wort) refer to the legend that the wounds of Jesus were dressed with vervain when he was taken down from the cross. This is disputed among biblical scholars as it is not referenced anywhere in modern bibles. It was also used as an ingredient in pagan love potions.

    PRECAUTIONS
    Not for use in pregnancy except under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner.
    We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
