Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a lemon-scented herb found in Europe, North Africa and West Asia, that comes from the same family as mint. Lemon balm has traditionally been used to improve mood and cognitive function but is also used as a relaxant to promote sleep.
From clinical experience we have found that it is a god detoxifier, particularly of the alpha solanine family.
