About: Lemon Balm has been called “the happiest plant on Earth”, that delights children to elders with its lemony fragrance and lovely, mild taste. There is a note of sour that children, in particular, seem to love. Lemon balm lifts ones spirits and gentles the heart whether enjoyed as a tea or extract. This delicious member of the mint family has been used for hundreds of years to support the nervous system, memory, busy mind, mood, heart, sleep and digestive system.

Delicious Melissa - this name comes from the Greek word meaning "honeybee" — an appropriate name, as the lemon balm bed is abuzz with honeybees on midsummer mornings when we gather the leaves and flowers to dry for tea & prepare as an extract. Calming, cooling, easy to grow, this member of the mint family is a balm indeed for body mind and spirit. In winter its taste is like a golden drop of summer!
