Be My Lemon Balm

May 27, 2019

Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis, Lamiaceae) belongs to the mint family and is also known by the names of balm, common balm, garden balm, or balm mint. This fragrant herb is native to a range spanning southern Europe to Central Asia, but today it can be found in home gardens around the world. The leaves are used as a tea ingredient and the leaf essential oil is also used in aromatherapy. Join me as I explore the health benefits of this fragrant herb.
