Lemon balm is highly prized for it’s light, fresh lemony scent and flavor. The leaves are medium sized and flavorful. You can use lemon balm leaves to flavor salads, and desserts or even meats and vegetables. It’s best used as a garnish after cooking as the delicate flavor will be lost otherwise.

Medicinally, lemon balm can have a calming effect, and is often used in relaxation teas and tinctures. Whether the goal is therapeutic or flavor, lemon balm is a wonderful addition to iced or hot teas.
