Colonial Remedies No. 6b -- Lemon Balm -20 Teabags
Makes the Heart Merry & Joyfull (For Occasional Stress Relief)*
Lemon Balm as a Remedy: Steeped as a tea, the colonials sipped lemon balm as for its uplifting effects: “balme makes the heart merry and joyfull, and strengtheneth vitall the care of the minde*.” (The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes (1597) - J. Gerard)
Notes: Lemon balm has an subtle aroma of citrus that makes it useful as a strewing herb to freshen rooms. It is also valuable as a plant that is known to attract bees.
Brewing Tips: Boil 1 cup water, then pour over 1 teabag of lemon balm. Steep for 8-15 minutes. Strain, and sweeten with honey.
