Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis), we know it for its beautiful scent and volatile oils. It is one of our basic gentle sedative plants, as it nourishes and sustains the nervous system.
Yet there is so much more to Lemon Balm than calming and fragrant tea. In this monograph, explore the herb for its other properties, such as its anti-viral actions against herpes simplex, its helpful actions in autonomic disorders, neuralgic pains, and its more modern uses as an essential oil and hydrosol.
I hope you enjoy this learning opportunity!
