Lemon balm, also known as Melissa officinalis or common balm, is a perennial herb in the mint family that originated in southern Europe and the Mediterranean region. This plant is famous for its lemon-scented foliage and small white flowers that bloom in clusters during the summer. The leaves are widely used in dishes such as teas, soups, and salads, as well as in perfumes, toilet waters, and soaps. Lemon balm can be grown in sun or partial shade and thrives in dry sites. It is also a beneficial herb for attracting bees and honey production. Traditional medicine has used lemon balm for digestive and sleep aid purposes, and the essential oil is commonly used in aromatherapy. However, research is still ongoing to establish the safety and effects of using lemon balm. This plant is also grown as an ornamental plant for its lemon fragrance and oil. With its various culinary and medicinal uses, the lemon balm is an excellent addition to any garden.
