Description

Verbena officinalis, the common vervain or common verbena, is a perennial herb native to Europe. It grows up to a metre high.

Vervain was brought from Europe to North America and is now commonly found growing not only in North America, but also North Africa, China, and Japan.

The plant does well in well-drained soil and full sun and it is often found growing along the edge of roads and in meadows.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Abortifacient - Vervain has also been used as an abortifacient to restore menstruation cycles when there is an unwanted pregnancy.

Analgesic - Vervain has pain relieving affects and is sometimes used to treat headaches and abdominal pain associated with menstruation and as it is considered a natural antispasmodic, it is used to reduce menstrual cramping.

Astringent - The herb has astringent properties and can be used in a mouthwash for bleeding gums, halitosis, tonsillitis and mouth ulcers.

Galactagogue - The herb has been prescribed post-pregnancy in order to enhance lactation.

Nervine - Vervain is thought to affect the parasympathetic nervous system and therefore serves a restorative and recuperative function. It can therefore be used to treat nervous tension, insomnia, anxiety, irritability, lethargy, and even depression.

Topical Uses - The herb may be used as a natural remedy for bruises, skin infections, insect bites, eczema, and other skin disorders.
