Lemon Balm




Lemon Balm is a herbaceous perennial.

It is a member of the mint family and has a delicate lemon scent.

The fresh or dried leaves can be made into a calming tea that is used to treat stress and indigestion.

Pick fresh leaves and cut up to release oils and place in a cup.
Pour boiling water over and let steep for about 5 minutes.
You can add honey or lemon juice if you like.

Or you can make the drink with double the amount of lemon balm
and pour it over ice cubes and have a lovely refreshing drink.
