Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) name reflects its past: "Melissa" translates to "honeybee" in Greek, referencing its nectar-rich flowers that attract pollinators, while "officinalis" is a Latin term for plants used in medicinal shops. Lemon balm was a mainstay in ancient Greek and Roman medicine, used for everything from treating wounds to boosting mood.

Medicinally, lemon balm continues to be a popular herb. The leaves contain volatile oils and other compounds believed to offer a range of health benefits. Traditional uses include promoting relaxation and easing anxiety, aiding digestion, and even alleviating cold sores, as well as for lemon balm's potential to reduce stress and improve sleep quality.

Culinary uses for lemon balm are just as extensive as its historical and medicinal applications. The fresh leaves add a delightful lemon flavor to a variety of dishes. Lemon balm can be used in salads, soups, sauces, and even poultry or fish stuffings. Dried leaves can be enjoyed as a fragrant tea, and the essential oil is sometimes used as a flavoring agent. The versatility of lemon balm makes it a valuable addition to any kitchen.

Lemon balm’s association with bees and its calming properties have led some to believe it possesses protective and purifying properties. It has been used in rituals for love, healing, and purification.
