again with the lemon balm
Lemon balm is really good for you. I just went to a lovely workshop where it was once again mentioned for its tonic properties.
For one thing, it has components which support less anxiety and more focus on what is in front if you at this moment. So it isn't like valarain then or poppy, lemon balm is more awake and doesn't take you down like a drug. Lemon balm is bright and sunny.
You can go ahead and read this article; http://www.herbsociety.org/factsheets/Lemon%20Balm%20Guide.pdf
I loved it!
Go read about the honey bees and how these two precious life forms work together to form in Lemon Balm, turpenes, rosemarinic acids, caffeic acids and many other phytochemicals that are quite interesting.
Am I saying you should go buy the highest dose in a bottle ( there are good ones out there, New Chapter, Herb Pharm, Gaia) and take 30 of them in a month?
No, but you could take a cup tea with lemon balm or mix it with a little holy basil tea, also known as tulsi. Now, that would be nice for you..
Have a cup later today and see how nice you feel..
Balance in life~right?
