Description
Lemon Balm
Melissa officinalis
[Approx. 1800 seeds/gram]

Cultivated in Europe as early as the 1500s, Thomas Jefferson listed 'Lemon Balm' in his 1794 herb list.

'Lemon Balm' germinates best at a soil temperature of 68°F (20°C) and prefers partial shade to full sun and well-drained, fertile, moist locations. The plants grow up to twenty-four inches tall and flower in the late summer to early fall.

It is useful in cooking, herbal teas, and home remedies. Each packet contains 0.25 gram of seeds. USDA zones 4-9.


Medicinal Herbs Historically, a tea made from the leaves is pleasant tasting and has calmative and carminative properties.[1]

Vaporization Temperature The reported preferred temperature for vaporizing and aromatherapy is 288°F (142°C).
