Lemon balm has a pleasing, gentle lemon fragrance and is from the mint family. The word balm means "that which soothes". The oil in lemon balm leaves will help you feel calm and relaxed. That is why people enjoy sipping a cup of lemon balm tea, hot or cold. It is purported to have both antibacterial and antiviral properties as well as reducing stress and helping with sleep.
Dried lemon balm leaves are a perfect herb for your teapot or your bathtub. Place lemon balm leaves and dried lavender in a muslin bag, then toss it in your bathwater. It's a wonderful way to relax.
