Lemon balm

Lemon balm is indigenous to Greece and the Middle East and is cultivated in Middle Asia, North Africa, Hungary, Egypt, Italy and the US.

Lemon balm has been used for centuries Paracelsus called or the ‘elixir of life’ – and it has been associated with nervous disorders, the heart and emotions. Lemon balm is used as a garnish or is added to salads to give a lemony flavor.

Lemon balm is a versatile culinary herb which can be used to flavor many different types of dishes from beverages to appetizers, main courses and desserts.

It goes well in teas, vinegars, stewed fruits, jellies, puddings and custards. Lemon balm is sometimes used to substitute for lemongrass and to intensify a lemony aroma in a dish that contains lemon juice.
