Lemon Balm, otherwise known as Melissa, is a member of the mint family. Dubbed the "Elixir of Life" by the Swiss physician and alchemist, Paracelsus, Lemon Balm is a true balm for the body, mind, and spirit, and has been used for generations for soothing headache, anxiety, nervousness, depression, heartache, and grief. It is commonly used as a children's remedy because it is gentle, non-toxic and has a pleasant flavor. Many parents have found it a safe and effective toot to reduce hyperactivity and concentration issues for children and adults alike.
Lemon Balm is also an excellent tool for digestive concerns, morning sickness, headache, anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, menstrual cramping, seasonal effective disorder, and because of the tannins and other polyphenols, Lemon Balm is thought to discourage certain viruses, rendering them unable to infect the body and spread, and has therefore been used to treat cold sores and shingles. *Actions: antiviral, antispasmodic, antidepressant, antioxidant, carminative, anxiolytic, nervine, radioprotective, trophorestorative.

Organic: Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis); steeped in organic grain alcohol
We use only the highest quality herbs that are certified organic, holistically wild crafted, and never irradiated or sprayed with pesticides. Our cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum of the plant's constituents in the final product. Our herbs are tinctured in organic alcohol and fresh mountain water (free from harsh chemicals and fluoride treatments). This combination acts as a medicinal strength and holistically balanced carrier, bringing the needed remedy straight to the blood stream to work fast and effectively. Tinctures are absorbed in the mouth and stomach and bypass the slower intestinal system which may or may not absorb the needed constituents of capsules. We hand make these wonderful herbal preparations in small batches. Tinctures are poured off into dark glass bottles creating a great product with an optimally long shelf life.
