“I found out about Louisa during the ZWT6 Nector of the Gods Challenge and thought I would post the recipe from the site I found the information, greekfood.about.com. Therapeutic uses: Louisa is believed to have a stimulative effect on the digestive tract; thus, the belief that it aids in slimming. It is also used to aid in digestion, and is believed to have a calming effect on the nerves. At the market: Louisa is sold under several names, the most common being lemon verbena. It can be found as a prepared tea (bags), as loose tea, and as dried leaves.”
