aromatherapy herb uses
The scent of lemon balm is warm, citrusy and soothing, a fistful of good cheer on a cloudy day. This resilient herb will thrive in any garden and it is not fussy about the soil, sunlight or water, which is why some came to see it as a symbol for overcoming difficulty.
Lemon balm tea is commonly used by herbalists to relieve tension and anxiety and to induce restful sleep. It is the go to herb when you feel the coughs and sniffles coming, its fresh aroma balances the mood, and its antiviral qualities keep germs at bay. It is a must have in the herb garden, but unlike its other mint cousins it tends to lose its scent and potency when dried. Use fresh to get its full benefits, its lemony flavor will give you a quick pick me up.
