This herb is not to be confused with its cousin Vervain, although from the same family, they possess slightly different energies and attributes. It’s has various other names including Cedrón and Lippia citriodora, with magickal properties to clear negativity, for break up work and for glamour spells. In Latin America, and to some degree in Spain it is appreciated for its medicinal and therapeutic values - as relaxant and carminative herb. Some sources ascribe it aphrodisiac properties, though this is not so much due to any direct stimulating actions, but rather the result of its ability to relax an overly excited mind and to awaken sensual awareness. Infusions were once made from the blossoms sprinkled on the altar of Jupiter, the supreme god in Roman mythology. The entire plant was considered sacred to Mars, the god of war, and was thought to have the power to drive away the enemy.
