Native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean, Lemon Balm is part of the mint family and is often used to flavor ice cream, herbal teas, and candies. It is known for its cooling and calming abilities and is thought to have antimicrobial and antiviral properties due to naturally occurring eugenol and tannins. Iced or hot teas with a bit of Lemon Balm and sugar make for a tasty and cooling drink.
