When I have a surge of stress

When I have a surge of stress
When I have a surge of stress

My testimony

I am not comfortable speaking in public. I no longer do it in front of assemblies, but I still quite frequently take part in meetings during which I am likely to have to intervene. Several times it happened to me to feel bad because I was so uncomfortable in these situations, although they were quite harmless. I started to sweat, my hands were sweaty, my chest felt like it was going to explode because my heart was beating so hard, my throat was tight, my voice wouldn't come out (it's not normally loud enough). …). I now know what I should do before speaking out or in situations that stress me out. Thanks to verbena hydrosol, I no longer have these excessive anxieties.

My tip

When I'm stressed or when I know that I'm going to have to face a situation that makes me anxious, I drink a tablespoon of verbena hydrosol diluted in a little lukewarm water. It's just as good in cold water, but I prefer the taste of verbena in warm water. And I don't dilute too much so as not to have to empty my bladder too quickly if I'm in a meeting... I also always have an inhaler stick4 in my bag, the cotton wick of which I have soaked with verbena hydrosol. I can therefore breathe it discreetly regularly, when I feel the need. A few deep breaths make me feel more serene.
If I have the opportunity, when I have had a stressful day and I have difficulty calming down in the evening, I take a bath in which I pour 50 to 100 ml of verbena hydrosol. For me, it’s guaranteed zenitude.

What does herbal medicine say?

Verbena entered medical uses in Europe in the 19th century for digestive disorders (stomach and antispasmodic), nervous conditions, intellectual fatigue. It is traditionally used in digestive conditions as well as for nervousness and sleep disorders.
Verbena hydrosol acts as a nervous (tonic and calming), psychological and psycho-emotional rebalancing agent. It has sedative and soothing actions for depressive states. It is indicated as a mental relaxant in stress management, in cases of anxiety, gloominess, insomnia. It helps with digestion in case of stress-related problems, and it is ideal in situations that create a knot in the stomach.

Lemon verbena hydrosol is also sanitizing and anti-inflammatory, especially on the mucous membranes. It can be used as a compress or mouthwash after a dental procedure and as a daily mouthwash for good oral hygiene.

I use hydrosols SAFELY

The proposed tip does not imply any particular contraindication, whether the hydrosol is ingested, inhaled or diluted in contact with the skin.


Lemon verbena, also called “scented verbena”, is a small perennial aromatic shrub native to Latin America, introduced to Europe only towards the end of the 18th century. It has long, narrow leaves that give off a strong lemony smell when crushed. In addition to its culinary uses, lemon verbena is a plant recommended in the treatment of depressive states, anxiety and stress. It is also a digestive plant which acts on gastrointestinal disorders linked to stress.
