Product Description

Lemon Balm Leaf 

Also Known As – Melissa officinalis, melissa, and balm.

Organically Grown USA

Overview - Lemon balm is a common herb in many culinary gardens. It is a member of the mint family, yet it has no mint flavor, only a refreshing lemon. Balm was once used as a "strewing herb" in castles and homes to freshen the air. Used frequently in salads, as garnishes and in stuffings, balm is a must in the kitchen. Luckily, this herb is easy to grow and it spreads in the garden without a lot of encouragement.

Organic Harvest - Our Lemon Balm herb is grown organically, fertilized with organic manure from our own chickens, rabbits and little kinder goats, and watered from our private well linked to the glaciers of Mt.Rainier and filtered into the Nisqually River. Our Lemon Balm is hand picked, dried meticulously analyzed, test for freshness, aroma and taste before we package and deliver to you.

Medicinal Uses – Internally, Lemon Balm, while refreshingly stimulating, has the effect of calming the nerves. The balm tea is effective in helping people relax and feel good when depressed or anxious. It is antiviral, and is particularly effective against the herpes virus. It relieves stomach cramps and gas and lowers blood pressure. Balm can help with headaches and fatigue. Even migraines can succumb to balm's touch. The herbal tea can be soothing during colds and flu. It is helpful during fever as it encourages perspiration. It is also helpful for flatulence and insomnia. What's more, this herb is safe for children. Externally, Lemon Balm stimulates the senses. Simply rub the leaf between your fingers or on your clothing to smell lemony all day. Fresh leaves can soothe insect bites.

Other Uses – It is used in beverages and foods.

Herbs to Combine/Supplement - Balm can be combined with other soothing herbs like valerian, hops and chamomile to create a relaxing effect.

Parts Used - The aerial portions of the plant are used both medicinally and in the culinary arts.

Precautions - If you suffer from hypothyroid and take medications, lemon balm may interfere with it. There is some suggestion that it may also interfere with the effectiveness of sedatives used for insomnia.

Suggested - For herbal tea, place a handful of fresh crushed leaves in a teapot of hot water. Let steep for ten minutes. Strain and drink as needed.

  • Lemon balm oil or lotion can be rubbed on herpes lesions. Alternatively, make an infusion from 2 to 4 teaspoons of herb in 1 cup of boiling water. Steep for 10 to 15 minutes and apply several times per day to the lesions with a cotton ball.
  • A balm tincture can be taken at the dose of 40 to 90 drops 3 times per day.
  • For capsules, take 300 to 500 mg of lemon balm 3 times per day.

  5. I highly recommend this shop, hands down;) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2016

    I cannot be any happier with my purchase. After searching through many different shops on etsy I read here that they grow their own herbs, which is a HUGE bonus. So different from purchasing from a third party. Upon receiving my order, I was surprised to see how well it was packaged. I'm used to a plastic bag. As for the product itself, beautiful. Lemon Balm should be bright green, not green/brown. And so fragrant. I can tell so much love goes into their entire process. Shipping was fast, and seller communication was amazing. They even offered their opinion for the best usage. I highly recommend this shop, hands down;)

  7. Just Perfect!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2016

    Have been dealing with Anxiety for a while. Had been using another tea and was finding a little relief. I ordered this product mainly for the 16oz option. I was pleasantly surprised with the benefits from the tea. So glad I switched!!! I drink this cold as we are in the heat of summer and no AC, have brewed it for a hot cup of tea and was so delish!!! I mix equal amounts with Stress Zapper for my Anxiety remedy.
