Lippia citriodora - Lemon verdena
Lemon verbena leaves are used to add a lemon flavor to fish and poultry dishes, vegetable marinades, salad dressings, jams, puddings, Greek yogurt, and beverages. The leaves are also used in potpourri.
Lemon verbena is used to make herbal teas and as a liqueur flavoring.
It is used in traditional medicine in Latin-American countries.
The oil was historically steam-distilled from the leaves for use in the perfume industry, but it has skin-sensitising and phototoxic properties.
