Lemon Balm, Dried

The scientific name for lemon balm is Melissa officinalis, and is a member of the mint family; it is also known as balm, bee balm, melissa, melissa balm. The Latin name “melissa” translates to “bee”, because the yellow flowers of the lemon balm attract bees. We use these dried lemon balm leaves for making tea, which has been used for hundreds of years for its soothing and calming effect. Lemon balm is native to southern Europe, but the plant is now grown all over the world, and has naturalized in North America. Commercially packaged lemon balm tea bags often are combined with other calming and soothing herbs, such as valerian, chamomile, and hops. We could not find any comprehensive nutritional information.
