Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)
What is it?
Lemon Balm is licensed in Germany as a sleep aid and is often recommended for tenseness, restlessness and irritability. That’s good news for anyone who enjoys Lemon Balm’s light and fragrant demeanor, whether used externally in soaps or lotions or infused in ice cream or steeped into a tea! Lemon Balm’s aromatic leaves look similar to mint, and they are in fact related.*
