Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways

Lemon Balm is best known for its calming properties, and has been used for centuries as a mild form of drugs like Valium.  This has been borne out by modern science.  It also appears to have properties that inhibit bacteria and viruses.  Stories abound about people who ingested Lemon Balm every day in some fashion who lived to very advanced ages.  Who knows how much the Lemon Balm had to do with this, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to drink a glass of Tea with breakfast each morning for a calm, soothing, healthful start to your day.  Lemon Balm taken in a tea has also historically known as a mildly effective treatment for inducing sweating in fevers and for regulating menses.  The leaves can also be dried and pulverized into powder for use in Capsules for when making a tea is not convenient.  Please see the link below on making herbal capsules for more information.

Because of its antibacterial properties, Lemon Balm may be useful in cleaning sores, scrapes, and cuts.  Make an Ointment for these purposes, and give it a try on insect bites and stings.
