If you haven't grown lemon balm, I recommend you try it this year. What a delightful herb! Perennials are a favorite since they provide a harvest year after year, but this one provides enough to divide the plant and share with friends and family, too.
My favorite use is leaves in my tea, either when I steep it or in the glass with ice. But there are so many other practical uses. Here are two great resources with culinary, medicinal, household and cosmetic recipes for lemon balm: Old Fashioned Living and New Life on a Homestead blog post. Enjoy!
