Lemon Balm

Melissa officinalis                      

Lemon balm is one of those vigorously growing mint-family herbs. It is both a culinary and medicinal herb, lovely as a tea or fresh in a salad or pesto. The lively lemony scent is uplifting, appealing even to children, and can be used as a gentle relaxant for seasonal depression (SAD) or anxiety, and digestive upset related to stress.  It is also helpful in treating symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Taken tonically, it can strengthen the heart and circulatory system. Topically, in a salve it is a very effective treatment for HPV, and other viral infections. High in calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, tannins and bitters.
