Used by herbalists for millennia to combat depression and mood swings, Blue Vervain is a deeply penetrating nervine that soothes and sedates the nervous system. It is a relaxing and uplifting herb that can stimulate the release of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, enhancing mood and well-being. Vervain is also effective in promoting a good night's sleep without rendering the user groggy in the morning.
