Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)

Lemon balm, a member of the mint family, has been cherished for centuries for its calming properties. Its mild lemon scent and flavor make it a delightful addition to any herbal tea blend.


Benefits:

• Nervous System Support: Lemon balm is well-known for its ability to reduce stress and anxiety. It works by enhancing the production of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), a neurotransmitter that helps inhibit excessive nerve cell activity, thus promoting a sense of calm.
• Mood Improvement: Studies have shown that lemon balm can improve mood and cognitive function, making it an excellent choice for those looking to reduce the mental fog and uplift their spirits.
• Digestive Aid: Apart from its calming effects, lemon balm also aids digestion, which is often linked to stress and anxiety.

• Anti-inflammatory Properties: It contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds that help in reducing stress-induced inflammation.

• Digestive Health: Rose tea can help soothe the digestive system, which is often affected by stress. It can relieve bloating and discomfort.
