Lemon balm hydrosol

Lemon balm – the fragrant source of energy

Almost everyone knows the refreshing scent of lemon balm. It has long since conquered kitchens as a sophisticated flavoring agent in lemonades or as an edible decoration on desserts. The fragrant herb is also a welcome guest in gardens and on balconies and complements flower borders or herb pots. But lemon balm can do even more. Early in history it was revered for its healing powers and used for all types of nervous ailments or psychosomatic disorders, such as headaches, overwork, mood swings and anxiety.

Use of lemon balm hydrosol

Lemon balm plant water is the perfect way to treat yourself to a moment of calm and ground yourself. As a room or body spray, it can bring relaxation in times of high nervous stress and, as a foot bath, helps to regulate palpitations and heart problems. Lemon balm hydrosol can also provide relief from nausea or headaches as a warm or cool compress and balances out an internal imbalance. Used as a facial toner, the plant water helps to achieve a beautiful and clear complexion.

Note: Hydrosols should always be stored in a cool, dark place.
