Blue Vervain is a perennial wildflower with purple-blue flowers that is native to North America. It is related to common vervain, which has been held in high esteem in Europe since classical antiquity. Like common vervain, blue vervain can be worn in a sachet for protection from negative forces and to attract abundance and healing. It can be sprinkled, either as an herb or a tea, throughout the house to protect your home from evil and bring prosperity. It can also be used in a bath to cleanse stagnant energy and encourage self-love, happiness, and confidence. It can also open up psychic pathways–place it under your pillow at night for divinatory dreams.
