Blue vervain (Verbena hastata) is known by many names: common verbena, Juno's tears, wild hyssop, enchanter's plant, herb of grace, herb of the cross, pigeon's grass, simpler's joy, swamp verbena, American blue vervain, and many more.
It's important to know that American blue vervain (Verbena hastata) is not the same as European vervain (Verbena officinalis) or North American white vervain (Verbena urticifolia). They are all used in medicine, and many of their benefits are similar. However, there are also some differences, and the benefits we'll talk about below are unique to blue vervain.
The roots of the plant can be used to treat sadness, nervousness, coughs, colds, fevers, stomachaches, cramps, rashes, and headaches. The roots can be used to heal cuts, sores, ulcers, and acne when they are put on the skin.
◉ Calms nerves and mood swings:- Herbalists have used vervain as a nervine, which means it calms the nervous system. It is usually made into a tea that is used to treat stress, anxiety, mood swings, and sometimes sadness.
Verbenalin is thought to be the part of blue vervain that makes it good for your health. It helps people relax and fall asleep, which makes worry and frayed nerves go away. Vervain can also make you feel better and won't make you sleepy.
Vervain hasn't been looked at in a lot of studies, but one from 2016 showed that it has sedative and antianxiety qualities that could help with seizures and epilepsy.
◉ Helps improve breastmilk production:- One of the most common uses of blue vervain is to help nursing moms by making them make more breast milk.
A galactagogue is any food, plant, drink, or medicine that makes more breast milk. Herbal galactagogues have been used for hundreds of years by women who are having trouble making enough milk as a safe and natural way to boost supply.
Vervain isn't as well-known as galactagogues like fennel seed, blessed thistle, and fenugreek, but it was once used a lot for this reason.
Try blue vervain in our herbal Milky Mama mix, which combines it with other helpful herbs that also help breastmilk flow and make it better.
◉ Headache and pain relife :- Vervain isn't one of the best herbs for relieving pain, but it can help with headaches, menstrual cramps, and swelling.
Studies have shown that both putting it on the skin and eating it can help reduce inflammation and pain. (6)(7) Drinking vervain as a tea (maybe with some peppermint to cover its taste) can be especially great for easing the stress that comes with headaches and your menstrual cycle as well as the pain.
Vervain can also help with bloating and water buildup, which often happen at the same time as cramps. Its cooling benefits will also make you feel better when you have PMS.
◉ Supports Detoxification:- The liver and kidneys get extra help from the bitter chemicals in blue vervain. Both of these are important parts of your body's normal way of getting rid of waste.
Everything that goes into your body will eventually go through your liver, which is a big part of how poisons are broken down and processed so they can be gotten rid of. These toxins can get out of your body through your kidneys, stomach, and skin.
This means that your liver and kidneys must be in good shape if you don't want dangerous amounts of toxic chemicals to build up. Vervain is bitter, which makes the liver work better. Other chemicals in the herb protect and improve the liver. It also helps flush toxins out of the body through the urine system and helps the kidneys work better.
