Uses for Lemon Verbena
Use for any type of purification work and notice its potent ability to strip away what spiritual workers call “old conditions”. Please note that Lemon Verbena is not the same as Verbena. This is Aloysia citrodora and it is most excellent for clearing away unwanted conditions, crossings, curses and the like.
There are a fair amount of old spells that call for this in matters of love and I suspect I know why. Usually, when people are alone for long periods, it’s because they’re holding onto something from the past. Sometimes it’s a feeling of unworthiness and sometimes it’s the fear of being hurt again. It can even be holding onto the memory of a lover or spouse who passed away.
While no herb is going to suddenly rip all of that out of you and set you on a new path, what it can do is just as good. The Spirits that live inside the herbs give subtle nudges of energy in a particular direction. As navigators know, an inch here equals several miles, over there. Put some Lemon Verbena into a Drawstring Tea Bag and take it into a steaming hot bath and say the 51st Psalm.
Also pray Solomon’s prayer from II. Chronicles, asking that you will come to understand what you need to be happy. Be aware, this usually involves realizing something about yourself that is unpleasant and far from flattering. Still, pray a prayer of thanks and begin to study everything you can about that character flaw and change it.
Because of its strong association to Mercury, use Lemon Verbena in any formula for the wing-footed, Messenger.

Conjure Work herbs, oils, powders and incenses are safe and high quality. However, a small percentage of people will have allergies that even natural, 100% organic substances may aggravate. A substance that is completely harmless and even healthy for one person might cause a slightly allergic reaction in someone with a more sensitive system.
