Lemon balm, also known as Melissa, is native to the Mediterranean and of the mint family. The Greeks used lemon balm over 2,000 years ago. Honeybees gravitate to the plant. This attraction resulted in the alternative name, Melissa, the Greek word for honeybee. Romans brought lemon balm to Great Britain where it quickly became a favorite plant among gardens. It has since been naturalized to North America.
Our salves are made by a Certified Herbalist, using traditional herbalist methods of steeping herbs in a south-facing window for 4-6 weeks in our North Georgia sunshine. This solar infusion method is the most effective way to extract the healing properties from the herbs.
Comes in a tin that is available in 2 or 4 oz.
To Use: Apply to skin as needed. Consistent use equals the best results, use at least once a day, a few times a day is better. Apply heat as needed with a heating pad after applying to the skin for even better results.
I have been studying herbs and creating herbal apothecary items for over 17 years. I create everything with loving intention and healing energy.
I use the finest ingredients I can find for my body care products. Organic and local as much as possible. A lot of the herbs are grown and/or wildcrafted in North Georgia and I only use herbs and essential oils to add fragrance - no chemical fragrance oils.
All body care and apothecary products are created in small batches by hand to ensure their authenticty.
