The leaves are reputed to also lower blood pressure. It is very gentle, although effective, so is often suggested for children and babies.
Lemon Balm is anti-viral, so using it as tea is great if you’re feeling under the weather. The hot tea brings on a sweat that is good for relieving colds, flus and fevers and as an anti-viral agent it has been found to combat mumps, cold sores and other viruses. Lemon Balm’s anti-histamine action is useful to treat eczema and headaches as well.
