I love this post, Rosalee. Bee balm is one of my favourite herbs ever- I'm so bummed that it doesn't grow in the LA area (though I have one in my garden that's an inch taller than me now and still not flowered!). <3

I love bee balm for it's properties and it's taste! I mix it with skullcap, lemonbalm and lavender as well as alfalfa, redclover and raspberry leaves. It makes an excellent nutritious and relaxing tea to sip throughout the day and helps me get a good deep sleep at night!

I have had a white furry tongue since treatment for staph. I read this and decided to chew a few red bee balm buds last night and this morning I woke to find ZERO white thrush!

I was wondering does one only use the flower of the Bee balm or can you use other parts of the plant also?

Rosalee de la Forêt said...

I use the flower and leaves. It's fun to taste the different parts and see which are spicier and which are milder.

I came across your site as I was researching about Maurice Messegue. I signed up for your newsletter and then came across this page. It so happens we have a flower bed loaded with bee balm and alive with bees. I have no idea of its benefits – thank you for this. I have a health website about pain relief and will certainly consider adding some information about herbs. I'm eager to learn more.

Can you use the whole flower head, or just the petals?

Rosalee de la Forêt said...

The whole flower head is great.
