SUGGESTED USEThe oil derived from lemon balm is popular in aromatherapy and is often mixed with other citrus oils to make items for deterring insects such as mosquitoes. In the kitchen lemon balm works well in sweet and savoury dishes. Best used fresh as its flavour fades if dried or if the plant is allowed to flower. Left to flower the plants lose their fresh, lush appearance, but allowing lemon balm to flower brings bees and other beneficial insects into the garden to pollinate your other herbs. The tea can be drunk to ease toothache. A soothing balm can be made from the leaves and used to help treat cold sores.
Shelf LifeShelf life of two years provided that goods are stored in an airtight container in ambient conditions.
