Makes the Heart Merry & Joyfull (For Occasional Stress Relief)*

Lemon Balm as a Remedy: Steeped as a tea, the colonials sipped lemon balm as for its uplifting effects: “balme makes the heart merry and joyfull, and strengtheneth vitall drives away the care of the minde*.” (The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes (1597) - J. Gerard)

Notes: Lemon balm has an subtle aroma of citrus that makes it useful as a strewing herb to freshen rooms. It is also valuable as a plant that is known to attract bees.

Brewing Tips: Boil 1 cup water, then pour over 1 tablespoon lemon balm. Steep for 15 minutes. Strain, and sweeten with honey.
