Bee Balm is a species of mint with a very aromatic scent, even when it has been dried. Its strong scent is pleasant and ranges from a wild oregano smell to mildly sage-like.
Bee Balm is both edible and medicinal. It is used as a flavoring in cooked foods and the fresh flowers make an attractive and edible garnish in salads. The fresh or dried leaves and flowers can be brewed into a wonderfully refreshing and aromatic tea.
Bee Balm leaves, flowers and stems are used in alternative medicine as an antiseptic, a diuretic and as a stimulant. An infusion can be taken for the treatment of colds and headaches, for indigestion and flatulence, to reduce low fevers and soothe sore throats, for mild nausea, menstrual pain and for insomnia. The steam from the plant can be inhaled to treat the inflammation of the mucus membranes and sore throats. It can be applied externally for skin eruptions and infections.
