Description

Lemon Balm and Bees

Even from Ancient times, Organic Lemon Balm is closely connected with bees as they seem to have a special preference for the flowers of this plant. In Greek, Lemon Balm is called “Melissochorto” (Μελισσόχορτο), which translates to “Herb of the honey bees”.

Honey bees wait impatiently for summer to come so that they can draw out long sweet draughts of nectar from the delicate white flowers of the Lemon Balm plant.

Lemon Balm through the History

Devoted to goddess Artemis in Ancient Greece, Organic Lemon Balm was considered an elixir of youth. Throughout the Middle Ages, to ensure luck, Europeans filled different types of amulets with Lemon Balm that would carry along at all times.
