Lemony panacea grows well
Tangy delight: Lemon balm has many uses.
For a refreshing lemon
taste this summer, plant
''lemon balm'' Melissa
This hardy perennial is
one of the most fragrant of all herbs
and is used in perfumes, furniture
polish and potpourri, as well as
drinks and culinary dishes.
It's long been used as a medicinal
herb for its ability to calm nerves,
lift moods, promote restful sleep
and reduce digestive distress.
It's anti-inflammatory, antiviral,
analgesic, antidepressant and
carminative among other things.
The revered Mrs M Grieve, in her
popular Modern Herbal (1931), even
suggested that it may prolong life,
writing that one John Hussey of
Sydenham, in England, lived to the
ripe old age of 116 after drinking
lemon balm tea for 50 years.
Lemon balm spreads very easily.
Even when grown in pots you may
find small seedlings popping up in
nearby spots in the garden. But the
plant is very easy to weed out --
simply pluck out the offending
seedling and dispose of it.
Sow seeds directly in the garden or
in trays for transplanting later, or
take stem cuttings from vigorous
growth in late spring/early
Plant in free-draining but moist
soil in sun or semi-shade.
In the heat of summer, provide
some shade during the hottest part
of the day, or plants may wilt.
The plants are very forgiving
though. If they wilt, a spot of water
will quickly revive them.
Cut back after flowering to prevent
Plants grow about 60 to 80cm high,
though in winter the stems die
down and the plant remains as a
low basal clump until spring.
The leaves can be harvested at any
time although they are more potent
just before the plant flowers.
Use them fresh or dry them for use
Hang in bunches in a well-
ventilated area out of direct
Once dry, strip the leaves and store
in an airtight container. I prefer
fresh leaves for lemon balm tea,
though you can use dried leaves as
To make lemon balm tea, loosely
pack a teapot with fresh leaves, add
boiled water and steep for 10-15
minutes. Or use 1 teaspoon of dried
lemon balm per cup of boiled
water. Add in chamomile as well to
soothe upset stomachs, help with
insomnia or for a mild sedative.
Herbalists often use lemon balm to
calm restless children.
Some studies suggest that the herb
may help with ADD and ADHD.
To make your own treatment for
cold sores, infuse 1.5 tablespoons of
fresh or 3 teaspoons of dried lemon
balm leaves in one cup of water for
10 minutes. Strain and dab onto
spots 3-5 times daily.
Or throw the fresh leaves into your
bath to act as a gentle sedative.
