Lemon Balm

2 oz. 

Lemon balm is a fragrant herb belonging to the mint family. Some potential benefits of lemon balm include:

Calming Effects: Lemon balm is well-known for its calming and soothing effects on the nervous system. It contains compounds that help reduce anxiety, promote relaxation, and improve mood. Drinking lemon balm tea or using lemon balm essential oil in aromatherapy can help alleviate stress and promote a sense of well-being.

Sleep Aid: Lemon balm is often used as a natural remedy for sleep disturbances, including insomnia and restlessness. It has mild sedative properties that can help improve sleep quality and duration. Consuming lemon balm tea before bedtime or applying diluted lemon balm oil to pulse points may promote a more restful night's sleep.

Digestive Support: Lemon balm has digestive properties that can help soothe gastrointestinal discomfort and promote healthy digestion. It may alleviate symptoms of indigestion, bloating, gas, and nausea. Drinking lemon balm tea after meals or using it as a culinary herb can aid in digestive health.

Antioxidant Activity: Lemon balm contains antioxidants, such as rosmarinic acid and flavonoids, which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. These antioxidants may reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, and lower the risk of chronic diseases.

Cognitive Function: Some research suggests that lemon balm may have cognitive-enhancing effects, improving memory, concentration, and mental clarity. It may also help protect against age-related cognitive decline.

Directions: add one teaspoon of lemon balm to hot water. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy.
