'Lemon Balm'

Melissa officinalis
Lemon balm with its delicate lemony flavor uplifts the spirit and any culinary dish it is added to.

Used since ancient times to calm the heart and the body. It has been used to sweeten jam, jellies, as an addition to salads, and as a flavoring for various fish and poultry dishes and liquors. Further, lemon balm is used for making perfumes, in cosmetics, and in furniture polish manufacturing. It is often found as a tea in combination with other relaxing herbs such as valerian, as an essential oil, and also in ointments for topical applications. Looks best when cut back periodically.
