Lemon Balm herb is also known as Melissa.  It looks a lot like mint and has been prized by beekeepers since the earliest times as Melissa means ‘bee plant’.   It has been used by ancient herbalists for complaints that “proceeded from a disordered state of the nervous system”.  It is often used as a tea, or warm infusion.  Its actions include nervine, anti-spasmodic, anti-depressive, anti-microbial, hepatic, and anti-viral.   As a tincture, it can be added to your tea or your water.
