Lemon Balm for Anxiety Relief
Lemon balm, or Melissa officinalis, is a fragrant perennial herb that has been used medicinally since ancient times.
As a natural remedy, lemon balm is regarded for its versatility in alleviating stress:
- Relieve anxiety. Natural compounds in the plant have a calming effect on the brain which effectively lowers anxiety response.
- Promote sleep. In combination with valerian root extract, lemon balm may improve the quality of sleep, reduce restlessness and the frequency of insomnia.
- Alleviate digestive upset. Herbs like German chamomile, fennel, and peppermint, used with lemon balm has eased stomach upsets, nausea, bloating, and flatulence.
This herb also offers anti-viral resistance against cold sores, may help reduce benign heart palpitations, and when diffused as an essential oil, helped reduce agitated states of people suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and improved their moods.
Widely found in Mediterranean gardens, lemon balm is well known for its lemon scent released when its leaves are crushed between the fingers. A member of the mint family, lemon balm is used for cooking, brewed as a tea, and can be expressed in the form of an extract, salve, or tincture. As an essential oil, lemon balm is valued in aromatherapy for its uplifting and calming attributes.
