Lemon Verbena, is generally acknowledged to be the most strongly scented and intense of the lemon scented plants. Because of its scent, lemon verbena is used in making perfumes and toilet water, as well as a flavouring in baking, jelly and preserving. The plant has an incredibly strong minty-citrus scent that is quite powerful when harvested fresh, however the dried Lemon Verbena is less over-powering and more subtle.
