Vervain Products

This herb has been a big part of many esoteric traditions all over Europe for millennia. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used it to either heal, cleanse or offer to divinity. Indigo Herbs brings you this great herb, captured in all its glory, as Vervain Tincture so this ingredient might transfer some of its mythical power over to you.

In England and Ireland Vervain was popularised by the ancient Druidic tradition being burned as an incense for purifying their environment but also used in numerous concoctions for various effects. It seems this herb had manifold properties for the druids with its reputation as a 'cure all' becoming exaggerated over time. Gerard mentions Vervain in his works as being a trick of the devil who made people believe it could do such things as make them immortal. In Christianity it is an herb of manifold contradictions since folklore tells us that Vervain was thought to have been used to staunch the wounds of Christ, but also was associated with witches and the devil. To the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans it was nothing but divine, used in offerings to the gods as well as a medicine. The famous herbalist Nicholas Culpeper in the 17th century mentions this plant as being ultimately cooling and useful for brightening up the mood of anyone who’s feeling ‘frantic’ which is more in line with the original ancient use.

Sometimes called a straggly weed, Vervain used to be found in the wild all over the UK. It is less and less seen these days but has many cultivated species being a part of the Verbena family. Generally the plant has opposite leaves that that grow densely before flowering. Then the stalks stretch until many spears of either small blue/purple or pink/white flowers bloom in rocket shapes. According to species the blooming will differ in shape and size with some being more beautiful than others.

Taking herbs in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Vervain Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Manufacture Process

The Vervain flowers and aerial parts of this plant are packed with the vital chemical constituents that make this tincture so effective. Only the very best examples of this plant are used in making this tincture. When flowering commences and is in the middle of bloom, the Verbena officinalis flower heads are cut and undergo a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.    

Verbena officinalis, Alcohol, Water

Taking Vervain Tincture should be avoided during pregnancy because it is a uterine stimulant, but it may be taken during labor to stimulate contractions.

Excellent service. Wanted old stock of a product as I didn’t want the new ingredients. Called them and spoke with Chevonne who was fantastically helpful. She made sure the exact number of the old stock left and that only these would be sent to me. We did the whole transaction over the phone. Goods received today and all is as should be. Thank you!
