Traditionally used to ease conditions ranging from colds, flu, and indigestion, to headache and depression, lemon balm makes a gentle tea -- always from fresh leaves, as the foliage loses its lemony scent and flavor when dry. A perennial that spreads by runners, like its cousin mint. Good in shady corners and containers. Just having it in the garden is a spirit-lifter!
