Medicinal Uses of Lemon Balm


Lemon balm is medicinally amazing for tension, restlessness, anxiety, headaches, and depression. Lemon balm helps promote a calming and relaxing feeling, so it is also good to take in addition to other herbs for insomnia. If taken as a herbal tea infusion for a long period of time, there should be wonderful results for uplifting the spirits.

Herbal tea infusion with Lemon balm:
*Infuse 2-3 teaspoons of the fresh lemon balm leaves (lemon balm does not dry well, it is best used fresh. If it is dried, use a similar dosage as the fresh) per 1 cup of boiling water. Steep for 15-20 minutes and strain. Drink 1 cup of the herbal tea 2-3 times per day.

This herb has a mild sedative action, so if you are someone who often suffers from fatigue, it is best to take this only in the evening.
