Manufacturer Description

The leaves of the Lemon Balm plant do have a lovely lemony fragrance. The leaves are commonly used to flavor tea, iced tea, soups, sauces, meats, and desserts. The leaves can be frozen or dried and stored for later use. The crushed leaves can also be rubbed on the skin and used as a natural mosquito repellent. Among Lemon Balms herbal qualities are its antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is also said to be effective at reducing stress, helping to improve mood, and improved mental performance. The scientific name Melissa comes from the Greek word for honeybee - the plant bears small white flowers overflowing with nectar that the honeybee dearly loves.
