Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a perennial herbaceous plant which is part of the mint family. Lemon balm is native to south-central Europe, the Mediterranean, Iran, and Central Asia, but can now be found in the Americas and elsewhere.

Lemon balm has been used as far back as the Middle Ages to help with health conditions like stress and anxiety, to help promote sleep, helps improve appetite and can ease pain and discomfort from indigestion.

Lemon balm also has anti inflammatory, antiviral, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties and is even a good topical treatment of herpetic infections (cold sores) and a potent remedy for the treatment of viral infections as influenza viruses have started to develop resistance to the current antivirals widely available.
