Lemon balm, a.k.a. the charming Sweet Melissa, is like the cool cousin in the mint family, originally hailing from Europe and the sunny Mediterranean. This herb has been in the spotlight for over 2,000 years, with even Theophrastus, the brainy buddy of Aristotle and Plato, calling it the "honey leaf," probably because it's the bee's knees. Back in the day, lemon balm was a top pick for the ancient Greeks and Romans, who gifted it to Artemis and Diana, their goddesses of the hunt. Fast forward to now, this herb is a star in the world of cosmetics and a beloved tea-time companion!
