Lemon Verbena Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Lemon Verbena Essential Oil, also called Lemon Beebrush Essential Oil is steam distilled from the beautifully fragrant leaves of the the Aloysia citrodora plant cultivated in parts of rural Morocco. With its delightfully green and lemony-fruity aroma, Verbena Oil can greatly enhance the aroma of any essential oil formulation. Because the yield is very low, and cultivation of Lippia involves considerable problems with regard to climate and other factors, authentic Verbena Essential Oil is quite costly.
In Aloysia citrodora, the aldehydic constituents crucial to its odor quality and pharmacological benefits - Citrals: Neral and Geranial - decrease during flowering, suggestive of their role in the recruitment of pollinators and a close association with flower development. Thus, Verbena Essential Oil distilled in spring results in higher yields with greater percentages of desirable
Citrals than those distilled in autumn after enduring the typical botanical stresses of summer.
