Lemon Balm leaf (Melissa officinalis)

This is the most flavorful, fragrant lemon balm that you can find, and it is grown here on our farm in the Missouri Ozarks. It is free of any chemicals or other toxic pollutants. We harvest only the perfect leaves at the peak of their freshness. We carefully dry them so they retain their color and as much of their healing properties as possible.
