Lemon Balm General Information
Lemon balm is a lemon-scented perennial that was a favorite with beekeepers in ancient times. They would rub some of the crushed fresh leaves on beehives to encourage bees to return to their hives. The generic name Melissa comes from the Greek word for bee. Throughout the centuries, the lemony smell and dainty white flowers of the plant have led to its widespread cultivation in gardens. Charlemagne was intrigued by its beauty and once ordered Lemon Balm planted in every monastery garden. As a natural remedy, it has been used traditionally to treat gas, sleeping difficulties, and heart problems. A topical application was used by herbalists to treat insomnia and nerve pain. Lemon Balm has stimulant, expectorant, diuretic, and sedative properties.

Lemon Balm Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Lemon Balm has been endorsed by the German Commission E as both a sedative, and stomach soother for indigestion and heartburn. It has been used to combat Alzheimer's disease by boosting memory and preventing plaque accumulation in arteries of the brain. It is also used to treat chronic fatigue syndrome and it may help with Graves disease. This plant can also lower TSH levels in the blood and pituitary gland. Lemon Balm has antiviral and anti-herpes properties and may be helpful in reducing the healing time of shingles, genital herpes, and cold sores. Lemon balm calms and soothes nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, colic, dysentery, colitis, and other stress-related digestive problems. This herb is useful where nervousness or depression affect the heart causing heart pains, palpitations, or an irregular heartbeat. It also relaxes spasms associated with menstrual pain and help reduce symptoms of PMS and menopause. Lemon Balm can also be used in treating headaches migraine vertigo, and buzzing in the ears. When used in a hot infusion it causes sweating which is helpful in treating fevers especially in children fighting infections, cold and flu, coughs, and catarrh. It helps break up the congestion associated with chronic bronchitis, asthma, and irritating cough, and also works well in reducing allergy symptoms.
