Re: Lemon Balm

After looking all over when I was first diagnosed (I was searching for any kind of quick fix for the pain), I finally found lemon balm at a health food store. It was $7.99 for 100 capsules. It is also called Melissa or Bee Balm as well. You can make a tea out of it and either put it on the sore, which is kind of soothing, but messy too. I think it is good for stress relief, which is what causes most of our outbreaks anyway. I personally don't take it regularly, but I know everyone's relief methods are different. Hope this helps you!!!
