Lemon Balm is an aromatic lemon-scented herb that comes from the same family as mint. Its distinct delicate lemony aroma and flavor has been used since ancient times to calm and uplift the spirit, heart, body and any culinary dish it infuses. This herb is added to a variety of beverages from teas to wines, and it is enjoyed with soups, stews, meats, and roasted or grilled vegetables.
The herb is also commonly used in health and beauty products, as well as natural cleaning aids for the home. Traditionally, Lemon balm has been used to improve mood and cognitive function and for having calming properties. Its genial nature can also be used to support digestion and to calm a jangled nervous system. And, of course, it has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
