Lemon Balm [Melissa officinalis]

Lemon balm is a gentle nervine with a strong evidence base and a very long history of use in western herbalism for stress, anxiety, and depression due to its uplifting yet calming tendencies.

This fragrant herb is often used in combination with other synergistic herbs. It plays a role in optimizing immune health, digestive health and providing a sense of balance for the nervous system.

Lemon balm has historically been used to calm occasional discomfort associated with indigestion, gas, and bloating in the digestive system. Azerbaijani folk medicine once practiced a medicinal bath called the Tibbname, wherein a soak in lemon balm tea was believed to support heart health and promote healthy skin.
