To build off of last week’s herb of the week, chamomile, we are focusing on lemon balm, an herb that has similar calming effects. If you are looking for something healthy to help you unwind at the end of a long day, lemon balm is the way to go. It’s been known to help people suffering from depression and anxiety, but it also helps you think a little quicker on your feet.
“Lemon balm strengthens your brain while lifting your mood,” explains Dr. Kristal. “It is great for reducing anxiety and nervousness while boosting cognitive function.”
So there you have it - an ideal tea to help you stay calm and focused. Whether you have a big exam coming up or you are simply trying to cope with the stress of life during a pandemic, lemon balm can be a big help.
Try it in our Lemon balm/mint/lavender tea blend and see for yourself!
