Lemon Balm, Melissa officinalis

Lemon Balm is a psychoactive member of the mint family and like most herbs Lemon Balm is antibacterial and anti viral in nature. It is also a slightly sedative herb, lowering fever, relaxing spasms and improving digestion. It is used traditionally for nervous agitation, sleeping problems and functional gastrointestinal complaints. Reportedly, when chewed as a quid or brewed into a tea it possesses a seemingly paradoxical mixture of effects; somewhat like kava...of apparently both stimulation and calming without mental fogging. Lemon Balm, Melissa officinalis, Melissa being a Latin derivation of the Greek word for honey bee and officinalis indicates that the plant is medicinal in nature. Originally native to southern Europe and northern Africa, Lemon Balm is now cultivated throughout the world, anywhere it finds rich soil and a bit of sun. It is a hardy perennial that grows to a height of about 2 1/2 feet.

As a medicinal plant, lemon balm has traditionally been employed against catarrh, fever, flatulence, headaches, influenza, and toothaches. It has also been used as a carminative, diaphoretic, and sedative. Recent evidence suggests that lemon balm has a depressant or sedative action on the central nervous systems of test done on laboratory mice. Oil of balm has also been shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antispasmodic activity. Lemon balm has been reported to be an insect repellent as well.
It has also long been an integral ingredient in the infamous (banned in many parts of the world) Absinthe drink.

Our Lemon Balm extract (4:1) contains the violate oil, glycosides, caffeic acid, flavonoids and triterpene acid.
