Native to North America. V. hastata, also known as ‘Blue Vervain' is a traditional folk medicine or remedy for headaches and improving quality of sleep. The German Commission E cites its uses, among other things, for irregular menstruation - endometriosis issues, nervous disorders and exhaustions that have created a state of inability to rest. Blue Vervain is known as a Nervine (nerve relaxant). It is generally agreed upon in the herbal community that Blue Vervain is the herb for uptight, fanatical, type A personalities. "Many herbs have specific organ affinities, whereas blue vervain seems to have more of specific mental state.
