Our lemon balm salve has turned out to be an AMAZING favorite! Customers have used it for all types of skin irritation. Here is what "Natural Living Ideas," has to say about it on its website: Lemon balm is a medicinal plant native to the East Mediterranean region and West Asia. It’s been used since ancient times for its many therapeutic properties and contains antibacterial, antiviral, antispasmodic and antidepressant compounds. A member of the mint family, it’s considered a calming herb – in fact, in the Middle Ages, it was often used for promoting better sleep, relieving pain from indigestion, improving appetite and reducing stress and anxiety. Even before that period, it was utilized by steeping it in wine to lift one’s mood, help heal wounds quicker and treat insect stings and bites.
DID YOU KNOW? The plant Lemon Balm is a natural bug repellent. It contains high levels of a compound called citronellal, which gives it its lemony aroma and flavor that bugs find unpleasant. Plant it along your deck or patio to help deter pesky insects. COOL TIP: Crush the fresh leaves and rub them directly on your skin, especially around the ankles, arms and other areas most exposed and vulnerable to bug bites.
Ingredients in our salve: Lemon Balm leaves infused in olive oil, beeswax and Tea Tree essential oil. That's all. Nathing else. Nada. Available in 4 oz. or 2 oz. containers.
