Lemon balm is a very easy herb to grow, and easily grows through out North America and parts of Europe. It is most commonly used in both hot and iced teas and ads a nice lemon zing.
When you brush a lemon balm plant or bruise the leaves, the lemon aroma fills the air, and the oil stays on your hands.

Lemon Balm Recipe - Hot Tea & Iced Tea
Organic lemon balm should always be used when making iced tea or hot tea with lemon balm. If you aren't lucky enough to have some of your own in the garden, we share our supplier with you after the lemon balm recipe.
- 1 teaspoon crushed lemon balm leaves
- 8 ounces of boiled water
- honey to sweeten
- OPTION - Add a teaspoon of loose green or black tea
Lemon balm can be a tea on its own and is often infused with real tea and other herbs such as lavender. Lavender Lemon Balm tea is one of my personal favorite true herbal teas.

Lemon Balm Leaves
You can use fresh lemon balm leaves or dried lemon balm leaves, both are very effective. Personally, when I can, I do use fresh lemon balm leaves as the seem to have more kick when the oil hasn't been dried out of them.
I also have tried freezing the leaves, but to be honest it is not worth the effort or the mess.
