The Verbena essence softens rigidity. It is for softening rigid views and helps us when we are rigid with fear. If there is any rigidity think of Verbena. It is for when we are too afraid to go forward, it gives us the loving strength to go forward. It also helps us to let go of those things/people/times which we struggle to let go of, those that we need to release to move forwards. It brings a soothing love that helps us relax into being adaptable, flowing and free.
For our animals it helps with fear, particularly when they go rigid with fear. For when troubled animals are unable to move on from their old lives and into their new. For when habits need to be broken and tension released, especially when this shows as stiffness.
