What To Do With All That Lemon Balm

Photo Source: WikiCommons

Yesterday I blogged a little bit about my new obsession...Essential Oils.  But another thing I have been into lately is herbs and using them in body care type situations.  My mother has an INSANE amount of Lemon Balm all around her property and I grabbed a few clumps and replanted them on our Roof Top garden and now we have 4 containers of Lemon Balm.

If you are over run by Lemon Balm like we are  - perhaps there are a few things you can tinker with in this post today.

One thing you can do with it is to make a paste for acne and/or blemishes.  Take a look at this post I did for The Raw Food World RECIPE Section.  It's Lemon Balm Blemish Paste.  

Another thing you can do that is SUPER EASY is Lemon Balm Hair Rinse.

Of course you could always 'brew it up' for a nice tea/tisane, add it to your dishes for flavor and garnish, and boil it in your kitchen to naturally diminish kitchen odors.  What are some of the things YOU have done with Lemon Balm?

    1. It's spreads easily and with little to no maintenance that's for sure!
