Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)



Spring always inspires me to take a closer look at the herbs in the garden and make choices about what, where, and how much of each wonderfully aromatic plant will be found in the garden throughout the summer.

Welcome Lemon Balm ! The newest addition.



Lemon Balm is a minty-citrus mind and body SOOTHER. In South America, in times of stress, people will often have a Lemon Balm infused tea.

Not only will it make a tasty addition to my mint teas, but it also boasts a soothing lemon scent that will also make a welcome medicinal addition to skin creams and salves.

It is an anti-depressant and a nerve-tonic... it is especially useful for anyone who has had long periods of stress that have affected your daily life. Long standing stress and anxiety can of course cause us to be sluggish, depressed, anxious, confused, and exhausted. Since it is especially useful for this type of long-term anxiety... I think it will make a wonderful nightly tea for many of us !

It has also been proven effective in a salve or oil form to combat herpes simplex.

The more one reads, the more uses one finds for this little miracle herb. To think that most people view Lemon Balm as a weed that needs to be eradicated ! I say... leave it around... when dusk falls and the mosquitoes come out to play, grab a few leaves and rub them on your skin and VOILA... instant bug-repellent. (yes, there is even citronella in the chemistry of this herb, and mosquitoes have an aversion to all that is lemony and citrus-like)

as a febrifuge it brings fevers down..
as a diaphoretic it promotes perspiration which allows a cooling tea to people with influenza,
as a carminative it helps prevent the formation of gas in the gastrointestinal tract (wooohoooo goodbye flatulence !)...

maybe I will need more seeds.


CONTRAINDICATIONS: People that take thyroid medication or have a low functioning thyroid should talk to their doc. about taking this one. There have been some reports that Lemon Balm could perhaps interfere with the absorption of thyroid medication. Of course you should always talk to your doctor about any herbs that you are planning to use medicinally.

  2. Herbal products are not only good for health, but also they are better than other products and more preferred because they do not cause any side-effects to health.
    Nice sharing of a healthy information.

  4. Interesting article. I've been using such herbs myself for a longer period of time, and I can say that they can actually treat and prevent many problems for which most people would use pharmaceutical products. Fortunately, there are healthier alternatives, and I feel that more people should know about them.

  6. This is an ok natural thyroid supplement . I haven't gotten any lab work since I have been taking it but am dubious about how much it will affect my TSH. I currently take natural dessicated thyroid from my doctor and that does work amazingly well

    cleansing caused her to have cold sores ?! Is it true !? Btw I have dry n sensitive skin so I used oatmeal cleansing than I apply extra virgin olive oil as my moisturizer so far so good...

  10. Hi Anne,
    Yes, I am still using my oatmeal.
    No coldsores for me :) I've never heard or experienced anything like that before.

    I have that very fair, super-senstive skin that comes pre-packaged with a Scottish-Irish heritage. :) Maybe I'm genetically pre-disposed to the oats method! I've only heard good things about it from people.
    Good luck! Let me know how it goes.

  11. I'm 39 years old female and I tested positive for genital herpes in 2002. I was having bad outbreaks. EXTREMELY PAINFUL. Six months ago I decided to search for herpes cure, which i get some helpful informations on how Dr OLUBAOLUBA have help so many people in curing genital herpes with the help of herbal treatment because I too believe there is someone somewhere in this world who can cure herpes completely. As of the past 2 months, however, I've been following his herpes protocol Via olubahivherbalcure@gmail.com or +2348131258106 and it stopped all outbreaks completely! To my greatest surprise I was cured completely by following the protocol of his herbal medicine . Don't be discouraged because it will also work for you.
