A green herb with a lemon flavour and odour, used as flavouring.
Widely available in Europe, this herb has lemon-scented, mintlike leaves that are often used to brew an aromatic tea (tisane). Its slightly tart flavor is used to flavor salads as well as meats and poultry. Also called simply balm.
an easy-to-grow herb that happily re-seeds itself throughout our gardens, lemon balm has a delightful lemon fragrance. It can act as an insect repellent, and is also useful in treating skin problems. (found in Herbal Pet Shampoo)
