Why We Love Lemon Balm

Published on June 24, 2019


Lemon Balm is a multi-purpose herb that we love at Gaia Herbs, we even grow it on our Certified Organic farm! The delightfully fragrant smell of Lemon Balm emotionally transports us to sunshine and summer days. Originally native to southern Europe, Lemon Balm is actually a member of the mint family.

Historically, Lemon Balm has been used as a culinary, cosmetic, and medicinal herb. It tastes great freshly picked from the earth, or as a piping hot cup of tea. Its calming properties as a nervine provide assistance for anyone who experiences ongoing stress.* This herb also contains properties that are believed to support digestive health, and it was traditionally used for immune health.*
