Herbs as Medicines
Lemon Balm:
This is a herb that I use a lot. The aroma that the leaves give off when crushed is long lasting and a delight to the senses. As a tea when mixed with lemon juice and honey, it is wonderful to drink and has a stress relieving, relaxing result.
Uses: Researchers have found that a mixture of lemon balm and
valerian is as effective as some tranquilizers, without the side effects.
It is also credited with an antiviral effect, and it seems particularly
effective against the herpes virus (cold sores etc.)
Lemon balm alleviates stomach gas and cramps and has a general
antispasmodic effect on the stomach and intestines.
It also relaxes the blood vessels, which helps to reduce blood pressure.
It is reported that lemon balm is relatively safe herb although it is suggested that for people with a low thyroid function excessive use may make their condition worse
