Lemon Balm

Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), also known as balm[2] or balm mint and not to be confused with bee balm (which is genus Monarda), is a perennial herb in the mint family Lamiaceae, native to center-southern Europe and the Mediterranean region.

It grows to 70–150 cm tall. The leaves have a gentle lemon scent, related to mint. During summer, small white flowers full of nectar appear. These attract bees, hence the genus name Melissa (Greek for ‘honey bee’). Its flavour comes fromcitronellal (24%), geranial (16%), linalyl acetate (12%) and caryophyllene (12%).                next russian dating sites in australia what is the dating age limit partnersuche vinschgau chris mann concert dates more rencontrer un homme sur tinder my sources site de rencontres pour mobile my review here (Wikipedia)
