Traditional Use

The bright, citrusy aroma of lemon balm lets our minds and nervous systems calm while supporting a healthy immune system. Boasting many benefits, lemon balm can soothe an upset stomach, subdue symptoms of the common cold, and protect the body from pathogens. This herb really does do it all.

Spiritual Use

Lemon balm has been used as a tool to support healers and shamans in communicating with the spirit world. This herbal ally attracts bees with its aroma and much of its folklore is painted by its ability to call spirits as it calls the bees. 


There’s strong evidence to support lemon balm’s efficacy in improving anxiety and depression.
