Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis)

What are the benefits?

Lemon Balm is an herb from the mint family, that has a very sweet smell and taste when combined with raw honey alone. Lemon Balm is used to treat anxiety, sleep disorders, indigestion and wounds.

You can make Lemon Balm into a tea by steeping 1tsp of dried herbs to hot water for 10 mins add raw honey and lemon if you prefer and you can drink this tea up to 4 times a day as needed. I prefer to take it in the morning before breakfast, and at night before bedtime.

Lemon Balm is also said to treat scars and even herpes. To use as a topical simply steep 2-4 tsp of dried crushed herbs in boiling water for 10-15 mins than apply to wound with a cotton ball.

Lemon Balm has a calming effect so it works really well with reducing stress , anxiety and insomnia. When combined with other herbs such as hops, chamomile, or valerian the effects are even greater. Following many studies lemon Balm is said to improve sleep greatly. And from personal experience this is no exaggeration.

Lemon Balm on indigestion: Lemon Balm has always been used traditionally to treat indigestion and to improve digestion. Combined with peppermint it calms upset stomach.

Treating Herpes: Lemon Balm contains flavonoids, and phenolic acids along with other compounds. And being that our body is compound made, it’s only right we feed and heal ourselves with compounds. All of these compounds found in Lemon Balm fights the herpes virus. Research has proven that when Lemon Balm was applied to patients with herpes simples sores that it effectively treated the sores around the mouth and genitals within 2 Days. It says that it significantly reduced swelling and redness just after 2 days!!!! With no side effects! It is also said to treat Alzheimer’s disease symptoms as well as help with memory! Those are some amazing qualities with no side effects like today’s westernized Medicine. I think Lemon Balm deserves a chance in your home or garden!
