An Herb to Meet this Season: Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)
Traditional Uses:* Lemon Balm has long been a favorite in tasty teas for its bright lemon flavor that brings back the scent of a warm summer's day. A cooling and slightly bitter herb, it has traditionally been used as a gentle antidepressant, to ease tension, as a mild sedative and for digestive upset. It is also hailed as a cardiovascular tonic. Even the scent of this herb can help to lift the spirits! Melissa comes from the Greek word for "bee", and our hedges are covered with them all through flowering! Truly an herb for all to enjoy.
