This fascinating herb has many mythological, religious connotations and magical beliefs that surround it. The story of Lemon Balm originated in Turkey before spreading upward throughout southern Europe. At Indigo Herbs we prize plant lore and have added Lemon Balm to our ever expanding range of herbs of ancient origin.

The story of Lemon Balm starts in the Ephesus (ancient Turkey) religious culture where it was considered to be the favourite food of bees. The bee was very important in the cultures that worshipped the Earth Goddess in the forms of Artemis, Demeter and Persephone and featured heavily in Greek cosmology. Seen to be the perfect model of life, with the Queen Bee being the goddess herself, the bee hive was observed to be a symbol of the natural order of things. The Latin name of Lemon Balm, Melissa (honey bee) officinalis, refers to this connection to the ancient religious thought with high priestesses of the goddess being called Melissai. Any plant that kept the Bees from swarming away from their hives was considered to be sacred and Lemon Balm was used in all the temples of the goddess in Greece. The Lemon Balm plant was considered to be the favourite food of bees that in turn bee products were a valued commodity of the community as honey and wax were important in commerce. Pliny the elder attributed Lemon Balm with magical properties writing that it had the ability to stop the flow of blood to someone wounded in battle if Lemon Balm was wrapped around the blade that caused the wound.

Lemon Balm comes from the same family as mint and the leaves look very similar. Native to Europe, this plant is now grown all over the world. Deeply crinkled leaves with a lemony scent are its characteristics along with either a deep green or even yellowish colouring. If the plant is not maintained it can reach heights of over 2 feet. Light yellow flowers grow from the apex of where the leaf meets the stem.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. The botanical ingredients can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.

Serving:

Use 2 teaspoons of dried leaves per person, per cup of boiling water.

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Blessed Lemon Balm Leaf Tea comes from Poland and is grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under supervision and soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peek maturity the leaves are separated from the root, cleaned and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The leaf cut is then tested again for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.

Lemon Balm is mild, gentle and safe for children. Do not to take it concurrently with barbiturates for insomnia or anxiety, as it may increase their effects.
