Description - Research and Analysis

The sour, spicy leaves of the lemon balm (melissa) plant are diaphoretic, calmative, antispasmodic, carminative, emmenagogue, and stomachic. These healthy actions make the herb useful for the potential to help support symptoms of symptoms of fevers, depression and melancholy, nervous tension, and indigestion. Externally, the essential oil of lemon balm leaf is used to help soothe the symptoms of viral infections. Lemon balm contains and essential oil, bitter principle, acids, and tannin.

The best application of lemon balm is as a calming diaphoretic for the potential to help support symptoms of fevers. Because of its gentle properties and pleasant flavor, it is most suitable for children and those who tend to be sensitive to the strong bitter flavors of most herbs. Since it removes surface tension from the body, it is effective against nervous tension and depression. Lemon balm can also be used like other mints, for upset stomach and gas.

Most recently an external ointment made with lemon balm leaves has demonstrated a high degree of effectiveness in supporting the symptoms of viral infections.

Name

Melissa officinalis L., (Labiatae), commonly called as Lemon Balm, or balm, garden balm, bee balm, Melissae folium, melissa, or Scholar's herb. In French, it is Mélisse officinale, and in German, Melisse or Zitronekraut or Melissenblätter.

Source

Remedies are made from the dried leaves and flowering tops of lemon balm. Melissae originally was grown in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean. The leaves have the smell of lemons because like lemons, they contain citronella.

History

Lemon balm was used by the ancient Greeks (Hippocrates) and Romans (Dioscorides) and is mentioned in the Bible. The pleasant smelling essential oil was highly prized and used in various liniments and balms. In the 17th century, lemon balm was a key ingredient in Eau des Cannes, a supportive produced by the Carmelite nuns for inducing sleep (the other ingredients were lemon rind, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and coriander in a white wine).

Traditional Support Uses

Lemon balm can be used as a sedative, antispasmodic, diaphoretic, carminative and stomachic (an antiquated term used by herbalists to describe agents that "stimulate" the stomach).

Commission E Recommendations

Lemon balm can be used to help support dyspepsia (upset stomach), insomnia and functional gastrointestinal complaints.

Possible Effects

Extracts of Melissa have demonstrated antiviral and antibacterial activity at least in animals. Other experimental studies have shown that extracts of the whole plant, as opposed to just the oil, are reasonably potent sedatives, with an effect comparable to that of phenobarbital. Rosmarinic acid, which has been isolated from Melissa officinalis L. extracts, inhibits complement-dependent inflammatory processes (the systems involved in disorders such as lupus erythematosus and joint pain). Unfortunately, none of these actions has ever been validated in a real placebo-controlled clinical trial.

Dosage

Steep one ounce in a pint of boiling water, covered, and sweetened to taste if desired; take freely as needed.

Lemon balm is made into a tea by steeping 1.5 to 4.5 grams of dried leaves in a cup of hot water. It can be consumed several times per day, as needed.

Directions

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
 

Cautions

Do not use if you are currently on Thyroid Hormones medication.

No significant adverse effects from lemon balm have been reported. Unlike sedative drugs, lemon balm is safe even while driving or operating machinery. Lemon balm's sedating effects are not intensified by alcohol.

Concerns

None. There are no reports of toxic reactions or side effects.

Warnings

None known.

Drug Testing

No component of Melissae officinalis L. is known to interfere with any of the standard workplace urine screening tests.
