Verbena: A marvelous fragrance with history

Welcome to our journey into the fascinating world of Verbena, a plant that holds an unparalleled place in the history of botany and perfumery. Today, I would like to take you on a journey to the origins of this enchanting plant and show you why it continues to be cherished in both aromatherapy and the world of fragrances.

Verbena, also known as vervain or verveine, has its origins in the ancient cultures of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. It is a plant that was considered sacred by the Druids, used by the Romans for ritual purification ceremonies, and revered in Greek mythology as the "Tears of Isis." The plant is deeply rooted in legends and has often been associated with magical and healing properties.

Already in the Middle Ages, verbena could be found in herb gardens, where it was used as a medicinal herb for various ailments. Its popularity continued to grow with the discovery of its versatile uses, whether as tea, tincture, or essential oil. Verbena possesses calming ingredients that can provide relief for nervousness and sleep problems, ensuring its steady presence in the home pharmacy.

The use of verbena in perfumery began in the 17th century when the value of its fresh and citrusy notes in fragrances was recognized. The essences of verbena are obtained through steam distillation of the leaves, resulting in a pure, uplifting scent that often serves as a top note in perfumes. The uniqueness of this essence is reflected in the character of a perfume that bestows beauty and freshness on both men and women.

Verbena, with its invigorating freshness and light, citrusy note, is a true delight for body care products and has firmly established itself in the world of beauty care with its soothing properties.

We are proud to present to you an exclusive selection of verbena perfumes and body products, carefully formulated to nourish the skin and uplift the state of mind.

In conclusion, it can be said that verbena is much more than just an ingredient in teas or perfumes. It is a piece of cultural heritage, a botanical treasure with a rich past and a promising future. As the queen of fragrances, it will continue to refresh many senses and warm hearts, as it has done for centuries. Let yourself be enchanted by the irresistible lightness of verbena.
