Lemon balm is an herb that is traditionally taken because it is a natural sedative. Its calming action can soothe frazzled nerves without the risks or the side effects or prescription drugs. Known scientifically as Melissa officinalis, lemon balm is native to Europe. In addition to its use as a soothing and safe tranquilizer, and sleep remedy, lemon balm can also help with indigestion and with fighting various viral infections. For this reason, people with cold sores sometimes choose to treat them with lemon balm.
