Lemon Balm - Melissa
The leaves have a gentle lemon scent, related to mint. At the end of the summer, little white flowers full of nectar appear. These attract bees, hence the genus name Melissa (Greek for 'honey bee'). Its flavour comes from the terpenes citronellal, citronellol, citral, and geraniol.
Lemon Balm is also used medicinally as an herbal tea. It is claimed to have antibacterial, antiviral properties, and it is also used as a mild sedative or calming agent.
