About: Delicious Melissa - this genus name comes from the Greek word meaning "honey bee" — an appropriate name, as the lemon balm bed is abuzz with honeybees on the midsummer mornings when we gather the leaves and flowers to dry for tea, prepare as an extract and make this yummy glycerite. Calming, cooling, a balm indeed for body mind and spirit. In winter its taste is a golden drop of summer!
Recommended Dosage: 20-40 drops, 2-3 times per day.
