Let’s talk about balm. Not lip… but lemon. Lemon balm the herb combines the power of 15 other herbs, making it an impressive aid in more ways than you think. From your body to your mind… all the way to your garden (it attracts bees for extra pollination!), this herb is a necessity to implement into your healthy lifestyle.
Soothe the belly. Lemon Balm is a member of the “mint” family. When I hear mint, I think about the stuff that settles my stomach when it’s feeling like there are five tiny aliens doing jumping jacks in there. Generally I run for the tea cups during times of sickness and lemon balm has antiviral components which makes it wonderful for many ailments including cold and flu viruses while the antioxidants help the body heal. This tea tastes amazing with some honey and a bit of milk stirred in.
Stress reduction. Stress is havoc on our general well-being. Lemon Balm is known to have a calming effect and even make you happy! It’s also great for relieving nervous tension and combating sleep problems.
Stay healthy. In addition to the above Lemon Balm is known for battling heartburn, indigestion and even cold sores. In a 2003 study Lemon Balm was even shown to help the cognitive function in people with Alzheimer’s disease.
To easily keep lemon balm in your daily life I recommend keeping Ricola® Dual Action Honey Lemon (available beginning in October 2015) handy. This herb drop features Chrüterchraft which is a blend of 10 herbs, one of which is Lemon Balm. That in conjunction with the other 9 herbs aids your body in a natural, soothing relief to sicknesses, stress and all of those other random ailments that plague us humans on a daily basis.
