A lady I knew suffered from migraines. The meds the drs gave her was not working. I suggested that she try the lemon balm. I saw her about a month later and she looked wonderful. She told me her migraines were gone. She took the tea 3 times a day for 2 weeks and then she cut back to once a day. It’s been over a year now since she started to take the lemon balm, no migraines, and she is still taking it once a day
Kitma, I have been really pleased to find this information as up until now I mainly drank tea and cordial I made from it because I really like it! I have found this site in the course of looking for gripe water recipes for my infant daughter and now I have seen it, will definitely add lemon balm in. To make a really delicious cold drink/ice cubes, I tend to use plenty of the stems and leaves (washed and chopped into smaller lengths - a good fistful when the stems are whole), add half a lemon cut into maybe 6 pieces and squeezed. Cover with boiling water so you have a good sized jug or pan full and periodically pound the stems carefully in the water so that eventually they will look quite dark green and wilted. If you have mint too, you can mix lemon and mint stems if you like. Stir in honey to taste and once the infusion has cooled naturally, strain well and chill or make ice cubes. As someone else said, it is a vigourous growing plant so get it going well and you should be able to do this whenever you want in the Summer.
hello, I'm 25 yo female...I'm young but suffer from GI disease (Crohns disease), depression, anxiety, arthritis (from multiple knee surgeries), fatigue, cold sores, and fybromyalga...I think that's it lol. I started to wonder if anything would help with my health. I started to take lemon balm about 3 weeks ago, though it's still a working progress and are still working it in my system, I am having a lot of relief (mainly my Crohn's and anxiety being targeted at this short time of taking it). I have been also taking about 12,000mg of fish old/flax and valerian root (which helps tremendously with restlessness...& has helped me LOTS). Though I think various natural/herbal medicine has helped, lemon balm has been a big factor in that too
I used lemon balm 2 yrs ago to help me regain a normal sleeping pattern. It worked great! I've also used it to ease muscle soreness after strenuous workouts.
i bought a toothpaste made with LB,it was wonderful! mouth was fresh, teeth white. never found it again when i ran out!
Great in iced and especially threemint tea (pepermint, applemint and lemonbalm) with stevia hot or cold, everyone who tries it loves it.I grow my mints yearround. Has helped me cut down on pain management drugs. Very relaxing
Have been taking this for about two weeks since my mom passed away, it really helps calm me down, so I can get to sleep, I only use a few drops, 6 to 8 in water and it works, I always take less of the recommended dosage , I don't need much for it to work. All in all, glad I bought it and would recommend it.
