Lemon Balm is delicious as an herbal tea fresh or dried, in fact it’s Heather’s absolute favourite herb for tea. In the Nervine class of herbs, Lemon Balm quickly calms and restores the nervous system to soothe frazzled nerves. Plant Medicine uses for Lemon Balm include overall wellness and extension of life, aromatherapy, migraines, high blood pressure, mild depression, hyperthyroidism and Grave’s disease.
For skin, it calms redness and inflammation while eliminating acne bacteria. A delicious mild citrus herbal flavour, we love using Lemon Balm in our Huna Clarify Blemish-Control line and Huna Clarify Skin Nutrition Beauty Tea.
The entire Melissa officinalis plant is edible, and the young leaves are absolutely delicious. Try them fresh or dried as an incredible herbal tea, or chopped fresh or dried in baked goods. Add Lemon Balm leaves to soups, stews, sauces and dressings, just as you would with fresh or dried mint.
