Lemon balm is a member of the mint family that is native to southern Europe. As the name hints, the leaves of the plant release a lemony fragrance when bruised.

For centuries, this herb has been used to flavor wines and in cooking, most notably to enhance the flavor of fish.

Lemon balm is the star ingredient in the famous herbal tonic and floral toilet water formulated by the Carmelite nuns in the 14th century, which is still sold in German pharmacies as Eau de Carmes.
