Lemon balm tea for insomnia
"lemon balm tea", "herbs for heart health", "herbs for insomnia" Lemon Balm

Lemon balm tea is my go-to tea for insomnia.

Chamomile tea might come to mind when you think about a tea to help you sleep better.
Chamomile will help you get more zzzz’s but lemon balm is also a standout herb for insomnia.
Lemon balm has been used as far back as the middle ages to:
  • enhance sleep
  • reduce stress
  • relieve anxiety
  • soothe indigestion
  • promote faster healing of cold sores
Lemon balm combined with other sleep promoting herbs such as valerian and chamomile helps improve sleep.

Ways to Include Lemon Balm in Your Life

  • Grow lemon balm in a pot, and clip a few leaves to add to drinks and salads.
  • Add a few leaves of lemon balm to your tea.
  • Place a few leaves of lemon balm in a glass of water with a slice of lemon.
  • Heal cold sores by dabbing them with cotton balls soaked in lemon balm tea.
  • Soak in a bath with crushed lemon balm leaves to soothe your skin.
