Lemon Balm Extract || Nervous System Support || Oregon-Grown Alcohol-Free || 2oz 60mL || ***IN JUNE 23rd UPDATE***
With a citrusy, green aroma and flavor, Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) has a bright, uplifting presence with both a physical and energetic affinity for the heart.
This extract is made with non-GMO, pharmaceutical-grade RSPO sustainable vegetable glycerin rather than alcohol, so has a very sweet and delicious flavor as opposed to a harsh burn.
Many feel that lemon balm uplifts a glum mood, and she is often worked with as an overall circulatory tonic, nervous system tonic, and digestive tonic. ^

- Anxiety, especially with depression or indigestion
- a heavy heart or glum moods
- high blood pressure
- nerve damage
- anxiety-induced heart palpitations
- Menopause symptoms
- Alzheimer's, dementia, or cognitive impair
