Lemon Balm

Why grow lemon balm?

  • Attracts bees
  • Smells great
  • Perennial
  • Easy to grow (mint family)
  • Can use for a tea (aka kool-aid for my children)
  • Calming
  • Digestive aid

Tea:

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.
