Product Overview

Melissa officinalis

Relax on a hot summer day with a glass of iced lemon balm tea. Enjoy the delightful scent in the garden.

Due to its beauty and fragrance, the medieval Frankish king, Charlemagne, had lemon balm planted in every monastery garden. Add to tea, use as a cooking herb to impart lemony flavor, or enjoy its aromatherapeutic qualities in a relaxing bath. Used by herbalists for insomnia and to soothe upset stomachs. A good container variety.
