Lemon Balm Products

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)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Blessed Lemon Balm Leaf Tea comes from plants that are grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under supervision and the soil is checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak 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.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Lemon Balm Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken daily.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

The Lemon Balm plants used to make Indigo Herbs Lemon Balm Tincture undergo stringent checks to ensure all plants develop to their fullest potential whilst adhering to exceptionally high quality standards. After careful selection and cleaning the plant material undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Lemon Balm should not be used during pregnancy or lactation. 

Due to its thyroid regulating action, Lemon Balm should not be taken by people with thyroid conditions without consulting their healthcare professional.

Lemon Balm should not be taken by people on prescription medication for mental health disorders as it can affect the medication. Please consult your healthcare professional.

Lemon Balm can cause drowsiness and should therefore not be consumed prior to operating machinery or driving.

Melissa essential oil is a wonderful aromatherapy oil to promote emotional well-being, uplift and improve mood and help you drift off into a deep relaxing sleep. A couple of dabs of diluted Melissa essential oil to the back of the ears or neck can help to overcome vertigo, dizziness, nervousness, anxiety, nausea and vomiting.

There is some anecdotal evidence that it may be useful to treat cold sores, helping them to heal up much faster. This could be due to the potent antiviral and antimicrobial properties of this versatile oil.

Blends well with; basil, chamomile, rose, geranium, frankincense, lavender and ylang-ylang.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Melissa essential oil can be used in the bath, or vaporized in an oil burner. It can be added to a massage oil or cream. Use 6-8 drops per bath and 10 -18 drops per 30ml of carrier oil. See Essential Oil Dosage Chart

  • Bottled in a pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottle.

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation or cold pressing.

Indigo Herbs Melissa Essential Oil is extracted using the "steam distillation" method. In this process the botanical material is placed in a still and steam is forced over the material. The hot steam helps to release the aromatic molecules from the plant material since the steam forces open the pockets in which the oils are kept. Molecules of the volatile oils then escape and evaporate into the steam. The temperature of the steam needs to be carefully controlled - just enough to force the plant material to let go of the essential oil, yet not too hot as to burn the plant material or the essential oil. The steam now containing the essential oil is passed through a cooling system to condense the steam which forms a liquid. The essential oil is then separated from the water and bottled, resulting in 100% pure essential oil. The pure essential oil is then diluted with cold pressed Jojoba Oil to a 5% dilution.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth.

Lemon balm is an herb that is part of the mint family. While it can be good for cosmetic and culinary uses, lemon balm is also useful for making an aromatic, savoury infusion. Lemon balm may belong to the mint family, but as its name suggests, this European herb is famous for its lemony scent and flavour. In ancient Greece, the plant was known as Melissa, the Greek word for honeybee, since bees are very attracted to its small, fragrant flowers. Humans have cultivated lemon balm for over two millennia. It is often used in cooking for its lemony flavour, serving as an herbal stand-in for nearly any recipe requiring lemon. Lemon balm has also been served almost since its cultivation began. As a herbal, lemon balm is both flavourful and aromatic, the taste offers overtones of lemon and mint, and has an appealing herbal quality that is stimulating in its own right, but which can also be enhanced with a touch of sugar or honey as desired.
