Herb of the Month – Soothing Lemon Balm
One of my favorite garden herbs, lemon balm has a wonderful lemon/mint scent, is easy to grow in partly shady, moist areas, and is wonderful for teas, salads, syrups, cocktails, and more. Lemon balm is in the mint family, and along with having invasive tendencies in the garden also provides a nice digestive tea. It makes a lovely after-dinner or bedtime drink for fraught nerves, stress, and worry. Or just chilling out. Add this lovely, useful plant to your garden list. Lemon balm can be purchased at any herb store or online. I like Mountain Rose Herbs and Starwest Botanicals for online orders.
