Lemon Balm Leaf Organic – Melissa officinalis


Lemon Balm has been used for thousands of years for its fresh citrus scent and flavor. Unlike some other herbs, lemon balm does not become bitter with long steeping so it is ideal for making big batches of tea and as an additive to many culinary dishes.

In certain magical traditions, it is used to attract love and protection.
