Lemon Balm

I am growing lemon balm in our garden this year, and the plant is huge! I decided to look up what to do with lemon balm, and I found so many recipes! Here are some of the things I am making with it. 

  • Breath Freshener
  • Tummy Soothing Tea
  • Itch Relief From Mosquito Bites   $2 per cup
  • Bath Scents   $0.75 per bag                                     
  • Syrup   $3 per cup
  • Mosquito Repellent    $5 per cup
  • Air freshener   $0.75 per bag                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              All of these either come in a glass jar, or a drawstring, see through bag.                               I am selling all of these things, except for the breath freshener and tummy tea. All you have to do for these is: chew a few fresh leaves whenever you want to freshen up your breath, and: fill a jar with fresh leaves, pour simmering hot water over the leaves, and cover up the top of the jar with a saucer to let it steep. Sweeten to taste.

Since the Itch Relief and the Bath Scents do not stay fresh very long, you will have to email me when you want to buy it, and I will make it when you want it. This also goes for the Air Freshener, because even though it stays fresh and smells good for a long time, it will eventually loose its smell.
