Lemon Balm – Melissa officinalis – 2 litres
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a lemon-scented herb that comes from the same family as mint. The herb is native to Europe, North Africa, and West Asia, but it’s grown around the world. Lemon balm has all sorts of health benefits which we will leave up to you to explore. Although considered a little invasive, simply take out what you do not need – an excellent present for a friend, the leaf fragrance is wonderful, in the summer it can, and will flower. The pollinators go mad for their nectar rich small white blooms, whilst flys stay away as not keen on the citric oil scent. Whether you make tea or put it in a cloth bag in the bath it is a very invigorating herb to have around.
