Lemon balm is originally from the Eastern part of the Mediterranean basin (Turkey). It is now found all over the world, in every temperate region. It gives off a soft lemony smell when its leaves are rubbed. Lemon balm can be used in herbal teas, fresh or dried. The leaves, stalks, and flowers can be used.
The plant has been known since Ancient Greece, and used against stress, insomnia, and exhaustion. Lemon balm also has significant antispasmodic, antiviral, digestive, and anxiolytic properties.
Careful: Lemon balm seeds require moist and cold stratification prior to sowing.
