Around the House

Dried lemon verbena mixes with other herbs to make a zesty potpourri that can protect your linen from fishmoths.

Placed in a bowl or cotton bag, the potpourri gives a pleasant, natural scent to the room or cupboard.

Lemon verbena combines well with other dried herbs, such as mint, lavender, chamomile and dried rosebuds and dried lemon zest.

Lemon verbena steeped in a mixture of vinegar and vodka or rubbing alcohol, and then combined with castile soap makes an effective spray cleaner for glass, kitchen counters and other sealed hard surfaces.

Desserts

Use lemon verbena to flavor desserts. For example, a few dried leaves added to sugar cookie dough results in cookies with a mild, tart flavor.

The leaves also add a tangy flavor to pound cake, cheesecake, yellow cake, custard, fruit tarts, ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Add a sprig of lemon verbena to whipped cream for serving over peaches fresh berries, as the lemony flavor complements the flavor of the fruit.

Blended with softened butter and sugar, lemon verbena creates a sweet, tangy topping for hot biscuits or scones.
