As a member of the mint family, Lemon Balm, commonly known as Melissa or its genus name Melissa officinalis, has been used since the times of ancient Greeks and Romans. The name Melissa means honey bees in Greek and it acquired its name because they are attracted to this lovely herb in the wild. Lemon Balm has been used as a tonic for calming the nerves, In addition to its exceptional skin care benefits, it provides a feeling of relaxation, encourages a restful night of sleep and brings feelings of a more positive mood. It also is a great herb for boosting alertness, your memory and to enhance problem solving skills. It is known to protect the cells of the brain, support the production of two strong antioxidants in the liver, ease stomach ailments and regulate blood sugar levels.
Lemon Balm is used to treat various conditions of the skin, including Herpes, so you will find it in cold sore treatments. Its benefits for the skin and body are amazing since Lemon Balm is a strong anti-inflammatory with antibacterial agents.
