The romans used it to increase stamina, to ease nervousness and against anaemia. This herb was associated with divine and other supernatural forces and it was connected to the goddesses Venus and Diana. In ancient Egypt, Verbena was called as *tears of Isis* and in ancient Greece it was dedicated to Eos Erigineia.
The Druids believed that the herb came from Planet Sirius.
It was also essential to Sorcerers, Samans, the Hungarian Táltos's rituals and to the Pawnee Indians: they were smoking the herb in their pipes on their rituals.
Throughout the world's civilizations, verbena was a preferred and well-known healing herb that has also been used to ease pains, decrease inflammation and its brew was a cure for colds.
