Please note that real essential oil of lemon verbena (Lippia citriodora) is rare and rather expensive, so it is often falsified or adultered with citronella (Cymbopogon winterianus) or lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus). These do not have the same effect and fragrance, so beware. We recommend you to buy from a provider that only sells chemotyped essential oil (meanings the plants used and active molecules the oil is composed of are known, as well as their concentrations).
