The honey-lemon fragrance and flavor of Lemon Balm tea will raise your spirit and delight your senses! Lemon balm is primarily used to relax the body.
Lemon Balm has been used for thousands of years as an effective calmative that is good for all kinds of nervous problems, including tension headaches, migraines, neuralgia, hysteria, nervous tension, stress, anxiety, excitability, heart palpations (resulting from anxiety) and agitation. Lemon Balm is also effective in calming the digestive tract. It relieves dyspepsia, colic, gas, upset stomach, indigestion and stomach cramps (particularly when related to nervous tension). It also appears to relax muscle tension without daytime drowsiness.
Frequently called "the calming herb," it may be effective in treating Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders, easing such symptoms as inability to listen, fidgeting, inability to sustain attention and shifting from one incomplete task to another. In the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, Lemon Balm shows great promise, because of the herb's possible central nervous system acetylcholine receptor activity and antioxidant properties. It may even positively affect cognitive abilities, enhance memory and improve mental clarity.
Thyroid: Lemon balm may help to make the thyroid slow in people with hyperthyroidism.
Cold Sores: Lemon balm can help to speed up the healing time of viral cold sores from the herpes simplex virus. It can also prevent future outbreaks. Save moist tea bags for use as a compress.

DIRECTIONS: Use 6 oz of water for each tea bag. Pour hot water over tea and steep for 5 minutes. Covering the cup with a saucer during steeping will retain the most nutrients. Never boil botanicals. Steep longer if desired, or reuse tea bag for a second cup. Sweeten to taste with honey or stevia if desired. Garnish with lemon or a mint leaf.
