Lemon balm is a sweet, lemony scented herb in the mint family that's native to Europe and the Mediterranean region. Its subtle lemon flavor with mint and herb undertones makes it a popular relaxing tea.

Suggested Use

To prepare as a tea, pour 8 oz. boiling water over 1-2 teaspoons of herb. Cover and steep for 5-10 minutes, strain and serve immediately.

To make lemon balm tea, pour one cup of hot water over two teaspoons of lemon balm herb, cover and let stand three to five minutes. Boiling water drives off much of the leaves' essential oil, so using cooler water temperatures when brewing and covering while steeping helps protect the delicate flavor. Lemon balm sun tea is tasty and refreshing and is a good alternative to hot water brewing for protecting the tea flavor.

Lemon balm makes a lovely, soft, lemony tea that is enjoyed just for it flavor. It also has other benefits. It's relaxing and uplifting to the mind. It makes a soothing before or after meals tea and a calming, before bedtime tea. It's considered a remedy for the heart charka —helping open one up to love and acceptance. Lemon balm is a nice additional to herbal tea blends, adding a nice touch of flavor as well as its relaxing benefits to the blends.

Lemon balm is also used as a seasoning in sprinkle-on spice mixtures and herb vinegars, or combined with other herbs, fruits, or spices in making punch or flavored wine. Cooking destroys the flavor, so it's not usually used in cooked dishes or in baking.

In personal care products, lemon balm is used an ingredient in skin toners, lip balms and lotions. It makes a cleansing facial steam and the leaves can be tied in a cloth and added to the bath.

Lemon balm also makes a good addition to sleep pillows in combination with other sleep pillow herbs such as hops, mugwort and lavender flowers.

Love the taste and effect

Posted by djsoma on Oct 11, 2012

I've been drinking this as after-work / bedtime all-organic infusion formulas. I mix it with Tulsi (Indian Holy Basil), Licorice root, Frontier's German Chamomile (or Ukrainian pharmacy grade Chamomile) and Frontier's Skullcap to relax and unwind with pleasant taste and fast-acting results.

Tastes like hay

Posted by Reviewer2667641 on Aug 28, 2012

This product may be organic but there is clearly something wrong with the drying process that turns this wonderful herb into something that smells and tastes like hay. Very disappointed.

IT's THE BALM!!! LOL

Posted by Reviewer1831171 on Mar 08, 2012

It's Nature's Valium, it's calming even if you just smell it, but it's much better if you suck on the leaves or drink it in tea. It even makes other medicinal herbs work better ;) Lemonbalm worked better than pain pills for my headaches.
