New moon harvest for a brandy tincture today. Lemon Balm is a zesty, citrus nerve tonic loved by the bees, as Melissa is the name regarded by the Greeks for honeybee. Lemon Balm loves to get absorbed in people's dramas and transform all those jangled nerves to a calmer self. Lemon Balm is a natural antidepressant, anti anxiety and panic ally, stress reducer, good for pregnant women suffering from digestive woes, helpful for those suffering from migraines and headaches, a heart lover and good for reducing palipations, irregular heartbeats, and blood pressure, useful in regulating better sleep patterns from those plagued by insomnia, helps to iron out some digestive complaints like flatulence, allergies as it has anti histamine properties and also works on chipping away the kinks with viruses ( in particular herpes) as it helps to lighten the load by reducing the length of the outbreak and to be less painful, less invasive (less sores and discomfort to deal with) and takes a shorter less oppressive residency in your body. With all this beauty to offer it would be a disgrace to the honorable Lemon Balm to not give her a try! One word to note on. I have read it may not be advisable to use this plant if you thyroid issues you are treating as it modulates thyroid levels to their normal state as lowering TSH if your high and raising it if your low.
