Another way to enjoy lemon balm is by making a tea out of it. I find it quit delicious, slightly lemony, slightly minty. I feel very calm and relaxed after consuming it. We all know I need that after a day at work, don't most of us? I fill a tea diffuser with dry or fresh leaves then fill cup with boiling water, nothing special. Try lemon balm tea if you need help with the following:
- Reducing anxiety & stress
- Easing heartache and depression
- Inducing a sweat to break a fever
- Bacterial & viral infections
- Digestive aide
- Inducing sleep
- Calming a restless child with ADD & ADHD
- Remedy against Herpes or Shingles
Lemon balm is very easy to grow. It doesn't send out shoots and spread like mint, it grows in a small bush form. I have hardly watered mine and it's still growing like crazy. Add lemon balm to your medicinal herb cabinet, you'll be thankful you did. If you cannot grow your own buy lemon balm tea bags here.
Have you tried lemon balm? Have any different ways to use it? I would love to hear from you.
