Lemon balm is a gorgeous, sunny member of the mint family. It has a light, refreshing citrusy taste and a cooling effect on the body and mind.
When it comes to skincare, its antimicrobial effects shine. Traditionally, lemon balm has been used by herbalists to help shorten the duration of viral skin infections (like cold sores) and support a quick recovery.
This balm is light and yummy, with a nourishing apricot oil base that feels light enough to use as a lip balm as well as other areas of the skin.
