Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis): Loose Leaf Organic Herb
Bulk Organic Dried Leaves
Grown with love and great care, our estate-grown lemon balm is unlike any you'll find in stores - it's ultra-fresh, lemony, and bright with vibrant green tones. We're BIG fans of Lemon Balm and use it almost daily in so many different ways: fresh or dried (although this listing is for dried). In tea - hot or iced. In salves, tinctures, and tisanes. Lemon Balm has held its place as a celebrated herb for centuries for its heavenly ability to bring calm to body, mind, and spirit.
Our estate-grown Lemon Balm thrives in the sandy soil on our organic micro-farm in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

How do you make Lemon Balm Tea?
Boil 2 cups of water in a saucepan or kettle. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of dried lemon balm leaves in a tea strainer. Place the strainer in the cup. Pour hot water in the cup, over the tea strainer. Put a lid or a plate over the cup to keep the herb's volatile oils from evaporating. Allow the tea to steep 10-15 minutes. Remove the strainer and enjoy! If you like, add a spoonful of agave or other sweetener and a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer for an extra yummy treat.
