Lemon Balm – Melissa officinalis

Lemon Balm – Melissa officinalis

calming herbs

Melissa is a cooling herb. If you (or someone you know) is angry or raging, let Melissa help you cool off.

Combined with chamomile, this herb is good for ‘tantrum-throwers’. With motherwort it can be helpful for stress induced palpitations.

Melissa cools an acid stomach and is used to ward off oral herpes. It lifts your mood and relaxes the nervous system.

Lemon balm has a lovely taste and fragrance. Crush a fresh leaf and let the light lemony scent brighten your day. Dried lemon balm makes a delicious cup of relaxing tea.
