Herbalists refer to the plant as lemon balm, aromatherapists use the botanical name melissa, both refer to the same plant, Melissa officinalis. Lemon balm is an aromatic mint with a venerable reputation for having calming properties. Lemon balm can be very helpful for those times when nerves, headaches and/or mild depression are preventing you from relaxing and getting a good nights sleep. Combined with valerian, it may even be more beneficial than many prescription sleep aids.(Balch, Phyllis A.) Lemon balm’s sedative and analgesic properties make it a favorite remedy for women having cramping, painful periods or any kind of stomach upset.

Lemon balm has antibacterial and antiviral properties, and like all of it’s mint family relatives, a cup of hot lemon balm tea induces perspiration to help break a fever making the herb useful for treating colds and flu. Lemon balm extracts are also effective against herpes, cold sores and mumps viruses. (Source anniesremedy.com)
