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.

Tastes a Bit Blah

Posted by priyanka on Jan 12, 2014 | Verified Purchase

This is a fab herb, but the taste should be lemony which indicates this batch was not harvested/processed properly. I'm still using it in calming blends along with skullcap, lavender [also blah], nettle, passionflower + oat straw. Overall the teas are great, I just don't know how much this lemon balm contributes; at least the minerals should still be intact even if it's calming + anti-viral properties are reduced.

HUGE disappointment!

Posted by 4743786851989877124 on Nov 11, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I love making tea from lemon balm leaf. This was the first time, however, that I tried the lemon balm from Frontier. The package I got thru iherb from Frontier was simply horrendous. Unlike the pleasant gentle lemon flavor associated with this herb, it tasted like bitter regular tea (tannic acid) and not the least bit lemony. Also the leaves were cut very fine almost to the point of being ground; I would have preferred larger leaves so it would have been recognizable as melissa. The leaves don't even smell like lemon balm. What a huge disappointment. I would avoid buying this! On a positive note, iherb had very fast shipping, so no complaints about iherb. If I could return it I would, but returns are not accepted on opened packages :(
