To enjoy lemon balm's mood lifting qualities, simply create an infusion by steeping the leaves in boiling water and drink like a tea. Its flavor is pleasing, and it's impossible to take too much, unlike some other herbs that are used for the same purpose.
Lemon balm is excellent for cleansing the skin. To use, throw some of the leaves into a pot of steaming water and drape a towel over your head, allowing the steam to bathe your face. Lemon balm can be added to bath sachets as well, if you desire an all-over benefit.
