Lemon Balm (Greek name Melissa for bees) is used as a tea, tincture or in skin care
4oz resealable pouch
Melissa is the Greek word for Bees. So that tells you that this is a bee loving plant. But not only do bees love it you should as well for many reasons. Besides it’s wonderful lemony scent lemon balm also helps to deter mosquitoes. Take a leaf and rubbing it in your skin to release the scent helps stay away from mosquitos’ bites due to the phytochemicals that are present in the plant’s chemical makeup. Once you smell lemon balm you should also notice a light scent of citronella which is used to make candles for mosquito repellents. But wait there’s more Lemon Balm is a culinary and medicinal herb as well. It can be used to freshen up lemonade, dried sprinkled on roasted veggies, drunk as tea for weight loss, ice cream. Oh shucks, the list goes on and on like it’s great for those suffering from anxiety and depression. You can infuse it cold or drink as a hot tea. I use lemon balm in everything from hair care products to herbal tea remedies. Lemon balm is a perennial in some areas so buying 2 plants should keep you in lemon balm for year
