Product Abstract: The Melissa herb's white flowers are a favorite of bees; hence, the plant receives its name from the Greek word for “honey bee.” The Melissa officinalis plant is a relative of the Mint family and is native to the Mediterranean Basin and Central Asia. Generally referred to as Lemon Balm, it was thought to give comfort and drive away sadness. This common garden herb is the main ingredient in the popular, centuries-old herbal tonic known as Carmelite Water.
