Lemon Verbena

Well, this was a bit of a mystery. I put a few leaves into my water bottle, and I had delicious, fragrant water. But it quickly got too strong, and it wasn’t a taste I craved all the time. So I stuck some stalks in my fridge and left the rest on the table to dry. The ones in the fridge ended up drying before I could figure out what to do with them.

I ended up stripping all the leaves off the stalks and storing them in an airtight container for the future. Tea? I would love to try to infuse some olive oil with them. Then I soaked the leftover stalks in water and, once they were pliable, wove them into a deliciously scented wreath that makes me so happy every time I see or smell it! I feel so crafty!
