Lemon balm

Lemon balm

Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a medicinal plant originating from the Far East. It is a great source of food for bees. This explains the origin of its scientific name, with “meli” being the Greek word for honey. The entire plant, but particularly its leaves, smell strongly of lemon. In medicine, lemon balm is used as a bath additive, to aid relaxation and prevent skin inflammation, or to help combat gastrointestinal problems.

Lemon balm is often made into a tea or used to flavour cold drinks, salads and sauces. It is also used as an additive in Klosterfrau Melissengeist© (medical product).

Lemon balm should be stored at fridge temperature.
