Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis) grows abundantly in our garden and at the Beacon Food Forest. A member of the Mint family, Lemon Balm is best known for soothing anxiety and other emotional distress, but it can also do wonders for our skin. Aroma is fresh and ‘green’, a little sweet.
This hydrosol adds a summery vibe to just about any drink. My preferred uses are external:
Spray in the shower or put some in your bath at the end of a long day.
Use as a face toner or mist. Lemon Balm is cooling and suitable for sensitive skin.
Mist on your bed/linens.
When not in use, store your hydrosols in a cool dark place. A refrigerator is ideal! Our aim is to offer the most untouched, unadulterated plant extracts, that’s why Hildegard’s hydrosols are preservative-free. Our unpreserved hydrosols come with the recommendation that they must be used in 6 months’ time after opening (contact with air).
