From our Experience:
Blue Vervain makes a bitter herbal infusion; it is best in small quantities blended with other herbs.
Blue Vervain infused in oil makes a lovely massage oil for the neck and shoulders - offering its nervine qualities to these stress prone areas. When blending herbal tisanes, blue vervain typically acts as the accent herb and combines well with lemon balm, lavender, holy basil (tulsi), and milky oats.
