About Lemon Balm

The scientific name for lemon balm is Melissa officinalis, which 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 this plant attracts bees.

We use these dried leaves for making tea, which has been used for hundreds of years for its soothing and calming effect. This herb is native to southern Europe, but the plant is now grown all over the world. It 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 for this herb.

We have not found any dramatic effect from one cup of this tea, but it does take the edge off. However, after two or three cups of tea over several hours, we notice the calming effect. This especially happens when we are upset over something over which we have no control, or can’t seem to get done.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal, and then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
