soap = crime???

Going to jail for soap possession.
This couple was detained for a month in a Pennsylvania prison when their soap tested false positive for cocaine.

Great news, I have finally found a supplier of verbena officianalis seeds.
Verbena officianalis is true vervain, the variety that was used by Egyptians and Romans all the way into the modern time as a medicinal.
It is the exact plant I discovered in the South of France sold as Infusion de Verveine in many cafes, known as a powerful ancient folk remedy.

There is so much confusion now about what vervain is, often lemon verbena is mistaken for this sacred herb, yet verbena originated in the new world, so is just a distant cousin of true vervain.  I have even seen verbena sold as vervain on ebay, and since there is no regulation of herbs, it's not possible to let the public know they are buying an imposter.

This is what true vervain looks like, there is no woody bark or sticks.  Blue vervain, native to the New World, is harvested with woody stalks and is a different plant.

Look here in the spring for exciting updates with this potent and healthful herb.  Soaps, lotions, tinctures, and more will be available after my first harvest.

Blessed Be!
