Lemon Balm – Melissa

| February 16, 2014

lemon-balmLemon Balm (aka Melissa) is a soothing herb that has been used for hundreds of years as a calming remedy especially to relieve anxiety.  One reason it’s been around so long is it is very easy to grow.  A relative of mint (no mint flavor), it has a light, lemony taste.  It is so easy to grow it can become a weed and crowd out other plants.  Just grow it in a pot or an isolated area such as next to a sidewalk.  The essential oil of lemon balm is frequently used in aromatherapy and massage for its calming properties.  It has one other secret.  An extract of lemon balm will reduce a cold sore or genital herpes outbreak by half and continued use will lessen future outbreaks.  It can also be taken internally as a sleep aid.
