INCI Name: Lippia Citriodora Leaf Oil
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.
The vibrant Lemon Verbena Essential Oil gives a buoyant lift to moods and may be diffused, included in hand and foot balms and body mists, or used to provide a special top note in natural perfume compositions, adding a citrusy brightness and sparkle.
