Why grow lemon balm?
- Attracts bees
- Smells great
- Easy to grow (mint family)
- Can use for a tea (aka kool-aid for my children)
- Digestive aid
1 cup boiling water over 5-6 fresh leaves or 1 tsp. Steep 5-7 minutes. Strain. Sweeten if you desire. Delicious when paired with mint.
I don’t usually drink cold beverages but my daughter made iced lemon balm tea with a hint of lime. It was so refreshing.
