Used by humans for over 2000 years, a favorite herb among many herbalists and alchemists. Considered to Paracelsus to be a cure-all, Melissa was said to be revered the most. Being a nervine, Lemon Balm’s main action is to act on the nervous system but it also tonifies the digestive system and the brain. This makes the herb very good at bringing the Gut/Brain dynamic into harmony. A mild yet effective Nootropic, Lemon Balm is said to increase focus and concentration. It is a mild herb with profound effects and is safe for everyone to use. It is considered especially effective for children who may be cranky, hyperactive yet exhausted at the same time at the early onset of an illness. Lemon Balm works well for ear infections, too – particularly in children. Mood elevating and tension relieving, it’s a good option for people who struggle with anxiety and depression. It promotes calm sedation without causing drowsiness, so can be effectively used during the daytime during work or school.
