Someone asked me at my herb garden party what Lemon Balm was?
Lemon Balm is really a children's herb.
Use Lemon Balm For:
- Nervousness, Whining or Crying
- Wounds and Sores
A very safe and mild herb for children.
As a Tea:
- Bring water to a boil and turn heat off.
- Put the lemon balm leaves in a teapot or stainless steel pot.
- Pour the boiled water over and cover for 15 min.
- Strain the tea and drink.
Nasty Caffeinated Black and Green Teas have given other herbal teas a bad name for years.
Herbal Teas are made with 1 ounce of herbs to 2 cups of water.
Lemon balm helps to break a child's fever. Next time you go to grab for the children's Ibuprofen or Tylenol, try Lemon Balm instead.
Lemon balm also helps teething infants.
C'mon, we have made it many, many years before all the crap they sell for kids colds and coughs.
Did you know that Native American Indians used to watch the habits of bears? They would watch what the bears would do when they were sick. The bears would eat different types of plants to get well again. Indians also watched deer that were injured. Often deer would go and find an area to lay down in medicinal plants or herbs.
Lemon Balm couldn't be any easier to grow and have on hand at all times. The herb helps children in so many ways. It's also great for adults. Once you have grown some lemon balm, bite into a leaf. Rub your palms together with a couple of leaves and then smell your hands.
Lemon Balm is just one of many fun herbs you can grow in your garden.
The benefits are endless.
