Grows knee high. If you crush a leaf it gives off a light lemon scent, so it's often called lemon balm.



Attracts love. Said to be very good for "brain health" and many famous people (like Emperors and such) would drink it as a tea in the morning (brain health) or infused in wine to cure sadness.

Medicinal:
Chest congestion, mild fever, mild influenza (causes perspiration) and helps relieve gas. It is a febrifuge, diaphoretic, stimulant and carminative.

When used as an infusion, not to exceed more than 1 pint per day.

Correspondence: Jupiter/Cancer
