365 Frankendael day 316


Lemonbalm (Melissa officinalis) is springing up from its perennial roots. This little patch, which will become half a meter tall in a couple of months time, has a treepit as its home.

Many people know how refreshing and uplifting a pot of Lemonbalm tea can be. Not so many use it as an antiviral. It’s very easy to make an infused oil from this herb and then to turn a little of that into  cold sore healing lip balm, just with the addition of a little beeswax.
