Melissa (aka Lemon Balm)
Lemon Balm (aka: Melissa) has a slightly lemon, herbal, grassy scent. One of the earliest known medicinal herbs, it is most often used to treat nervous disorders. It is highly effective as an antidepressant. It slows the respiration and pulse, lowers the blood pressure, and the antispasmodic property effects the smooth muscles. These health concerns benefit from the calming effects of Lemon Balm: depression, anger, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and cognitive impairments. The antiviral property of Lemon Balm can inactivate a virus before it enters a cell. This makes it very, very effective against the Simplex herpes virus.
