Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)

Melissa is a perennial herbaceous plant with a slight lemony smell. It is cultivated in many countries in Europe.

The leaves of the herb are used for teas, as a spice and for medicinal purposes. Mint is also used to attract bees to increase honey production.

Nowadays, lemon balm is used in traditional medicine, which has a soothing effect , lowers blood pressure, removes smooth muscle spasms, removes gas from the stomach and intestines, relieves bloating and digestive colic and stomach discomfort.

It is harvested in several cuts depending on growing conditions and watering availability, with the first cut likely to be in May. Very fickle to drying methods. If the technology is not followed during drying, the leaves quickly turn brown and the value of the dried dope decreases.

We collect the stalks from our partners’ plantations. We have established long-standing partner relationships and supply contracts. We carry out our own inspection of the plantations during the marketing year, take soil analyses and analyse the fresh raw material for pesticides.
