Lemon balm, or Melissa officinalis
Lemon balm, considered a super herb, produces leaves and flowers filled with healing properties. A fun fact about Lemon balm is that it lives within the Mint family tree - offering a beautiful scent of lemon and minty love. It grows with wild abandon; you may have even seen her in your garden journeys. We like her style and want you to have a little taste of that too. Lemon balm is versatile in how it can be consumed, including tea, tinctures, and capsules. We have included this herb in our REST formula to give your body easy access to her wonders - especially when you need rest.
Evidence-based relief and benefits from this superherb:
- Women who experience anxiety or stress that interferes with their ability to fall asleep or stay asleep may benefit from incorporating lemon balm aerial parts into their bedtime routine
- Lemon balm may improve sleep quality in women by increasing the duration of deep sleep and decreasing the time it takes to fall asleep. This can lead to feeling more rested and alert during the day
- Sleep disturbances are common for women with hormonal imbalances (hello, perimenopause!). Lemon balm may help manage symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia
