Lemon balm or Melissa officinalis is such an abundantly generous plant. Another mint family plant, she grows prolifically and without restraint in the garden. Melissa loves the sun, and the bees love her! The ancient priestesses of Europe were called the Melissae, named after the bees and their sweet honey which brought health and magic to the people.
Lemon balm has such a lovely, light, citrus flavor. Popping a fresh leaf in the mouth is like eating the shimmering sunlight as it sparkles in the dew of the morning. It is so filled with vitality and freshness and joy. Lemon balm is known to ease frazzled nerves, protect and support the thyroid gland, shorten panic attacks, and so much more.
