Benefits of Vervain Root (Organic)


You may not have heard of Vervain, because this magical herb has long been shrouded in mystery. This holy herb holds many secrets, and studying it may well take you on an esoteric exploration.

Vervain has long been revered by many different cultures and peoples, including the Druids, Persians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and Scandinavian Thor worshippers.
In ancient Egypt, it was revered as a divine herb derived from the tears of the goddess Isis as she wept over the dying Osiris. The Romans and Greeks also considered it to be a sacred herb, so much so that they used it to cleanse temple altars.
Hippocrates, the Greek physician, recommended it as a treatment for severe fever.

Sometimes referred to as the “herb of the cross” since it was said to be applied to Jesus’s wounds after he was taken down from the cross. The cross itself is an esoteric symbol that predates Christianity and is associated with transcendence and spiritual rebirth. Does Vervain shine a light on these ancient mystic mysteries?
Well, it is certainly a powerful healing herb with many reviving properties. It has a long history of medicinal use in a variety of systems throughout the body. It has been used in traditional herbal medicine to treat headaches, insomnia, depression, anxiety, kidney stones, gout, jaundice, and other ailments. It has also been used to help nursing mothers improve their lactation and as a treatment for menstrual pain.

Scientific research is confirming that ancient people were right to revere this remarkable herb.

Vervian has been shown by researchers to possess anti-inflammatory properties (internally and externally). This is one of the most useful properties for a herb to have. When you reduce inflammation in the body, you can improve a wide range of common, chronic, and even major health issues. According to a research paper from the international journal Planta Medica, all vervain extracts “induce a remarkable anti-inflammatory activity.” Furthermore, the extracts demonstrated the ability to reduce gastrointestinal damage.
Vervian is also a healing herb for the heart, attracting some research regarding its potential use for cardio problems.

According to research, Verbena officinalis has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. This is potentially significant as there is a desperate need to find alternatives to antibiotics which are losing their effectiveness in some instances as bacteria build resistance.

Anxiety is one of the most endemic problems in the modern world, and to make matters worse, the drugs used to treat it are often highly addictive. Vervian may offer some hope since it has been found to have a calming effect on the central nervous system. Recently, researchers in Spain discovered that a crude extract of vervain improved seizure responses. It also helped people fall asleep faster, and stay asleep longer. They concluded, “Verbena officinalis possess anticonvulsant, anxiolytic and sedative activities, which provides scientific background for its medicinal application in various neurological ailments, such as epilepsy, anxiety, and insomnia”.
