Lemon balm plant

Junior Herbalist Club @ Park View, Lytham

This Saturday (17th October) our First Year Junior Herbalists will be learning all about the lovely aromatic Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis), and making a ‘Sun Tea’ to take home and enjoy!

This popular garden plant lifts the spirits, calms the mind, and improves memory and concentration. It also eases tummy aches and headaches, and can be taken to help alleviate fevers, colds and flu.

Used medicinally for over 2000 years, it was believed that taken every morning Lemon balm would “renew youth, strengthen the brain and relieve languishing nature”. It was hailed by Paracelsus as “the elixir of life” and described as “sovereign for the brain, strengthening the memory, and powerfully chasing away melancholy”.

First Year children to meet at 11.30am outside the Eco Pod. Please bring a clean empty glass jar with lid to take your Sun Tea home in.
