We have a well-established clump of Vervain growing in the garden that on hot days like today (32degC/feels like 42C) is bursting with flowers and attracts all sorts of insects … including, sadly, the evil Japanese beetles.
Another of those muck-and-mystery herbal cure-alls, a claim one can take with a pinch of salt, but better than that (quote): “Vervain is a vampire’s most well-known weakness. If a vampire makes physical contact with vervain in any form, it will burn them. If a human ingests or holds vervain somewhere in or on the body (such as holding it in a hand or pocket, or wearing it in jewelry), the human is protected from vampire compulsion and entitled to free will.” So if you are troubled by vampires this summer, feel free to drop by.
