Lemon Balm, The Healing Herb You Need in Your Kitchen Right Now

Did you know that a plant so simple like lemon balm can be used as a natural remedy to improve your quality of sleep, diminish nervous anxiety, heal wounds, fight cancer and promote longevity?

Since the Middle Ages, this lemony scented plant has been praised for its many benefits that not even mainstream doctors can deny.

The Greek doctors have been using it for thousands of years. In it, they recognized its incredible ability to:

  • fight stress, anxiety, tension
  • improve digestion
  • soothe PMS symptoms
  • regulate an overactive thyroid
  • alleviate cramping
  • treat headaches and nerve pain
  • protect your liver
  • lower high blood pressure
  • lifts brain fog
  • banish exhaustion and chronic fatigue
  • improve sleep and concentration

Whereas the Iranian medicine has been using it as a therapy to soothe heart palpitations.

And the modern science has more than backed this claim up. A study analyzing patients with heart problems discovered that patients in the trial group who’d been given an extract of lemon leaf were able to experience fewer heart palpitations episodes.

And with all its remarkable properties and thousands of years of history, I couldn’t actually ignore it and not use this plant myself.

Ever since I started using it, I could actually feel it lowering my increasingly high-stress levels, which go through the roof every time I know that my son is traveling by plane.

The lemon balm actually works wonders for me.

But there are multiple other ways you can use the lemon balm to achieve an overall well-being sensation.

Ways you can use lemon balm

You can use the leaves of the lemon balm to make a soothing cup of tea, use it as a great dish seasoning (just chop a few leaves to flavor your favorite meals), and even as a mosquito repellent, by just keeping the lemon balm leaves close to you.

But you can also add a few leaves in smoothies to enjoy a great taste and take advantage of the many health benefits that come along with using it.

Here’s an idea: blend together a pear, 4-5 leaves of lemon balm and a cup of coconut milk. But you can make virtually any other combination of fruits and vegetables that you enjoy the most.

And let me tell you one other thing: given that lemon balm is a powerful antifungal and antivirus agent, it helps fight herpes and candida.

To treat a cold sore, infuse a handful of lemon balm leaves in almond or coconut oil and then add a bit of beeswax to it. This will help it gain that lip balm consistency.

Have you ever used the lemon balm up until now?
