Lemon balm is a herb which when taken as a tea calms the nerves. It acts as mild sedative and helps in getting sound sleep. Lemon Balm essential oil help is used in aroma therapy.
I find it easy to grow and it has a strong lemony flavor.

Lemon Balm

    I am really sorry but I think above shown plant is not a lemon balm. it is only simple mint plant.

    You certainly couldn’t prove by me 🙂 I tried growing lemon balm from two different seed packets and neither of them came up. Maybe the third time will be the charm!

      Oh how sad that your lemon balm would not grow. In my case while lemon balm was easy it was Rosemarie that proved tough. Guess it they need the conditions that suit their growth.

      My good wishes for your success in the next attempt. 🙂
