Lemon balm has the reputation of being an excellent mosquito repellent. Use it by rubbing the fresh leaves against the skin. Lemon balm extract has been found to have “exceptionally high” antioxidant activity, as well as mild antibacterial and rather stronger antiviral properties; in one study it was found to affect the herpes simplex virus. Researchers at the University of Maryland Medical Center, however, warn that lemon balm “should be avoided by those on thyroid medication (such as thyroxine), as it is believed the herb inhibits the absorption of this medicine.”

The herb is used for nervous agitation, sleeping problems, functional gastrointestinal complaints, menstrual cramps and urinary spasms.

It is thought that the volatile oils in lemon balm contain chemicals that relax muscles, particularly in the bladder, stomach, and uterus, thereby relieving cramps, gas, and nausea.
