We pay particular attention to the verbena because it is a small shrub that requires a lot of regular care such as soil aeration. Harvesting takes place in the summer. Pickers of Manfolium shed their leaves and young branches then take them directly in the dryer. Thin layers are spread on racks. Intense lemon fragrance filled the room.

Its Latin name: Lipia citriodora

Its traditional uses
The verbena is known for its calming qualities because it soothes feelings of stomache and fight against stress. Its infusion, very fragrant, is against sleep disorders.
