Benefits of Verbena

Harvested twice a year, the certified organic Verbena extract used in our L'OCCITANE bath, body, and home products offers refreshing scents of lemon and citrus found in the Verbena plant to help revitalize the body and the mind. Verbena leaf extract is used for its refreshing attributes, and its invigorating citrus fragrance. Our L'OCCITANE Verbena bath and body care products can also be very soothing to the soul, helping to evoke an atmosphere of calm and peacefulness.

Originally indigenous to Chile, verbena (Verbena Officinalis) has been cultivated for centuries in Provence and throughout the Mediterranean. The fresh scent of Verbena actually comes from its leaves, and crushing a few leaves in the hand is all it takes to release a wonderful, clean fragrance.

Verbena is cherished for it's natural soothing properties as well as its zesty citrus scent. It is a paradox of the senses: while cool and refreshing, it is also found to be warm, soothing and inviting. Its paradoxical nature makes it wonderful as a fragrance, and well-suited to skincare and hair care uses.
