Lemon balm is a plant that can be grown at home because it is easy to plant and maintain. The herb is used for nervous agitation, sleep problems, functional gastrointestinal disorders, menstrual cramps, and urinary spasms.

The volatile oils in lemon balm are believed to contain chemicals that relax muscles, particularly in the bladder, stomach, and uterus, thus relieving cramps, gas, and nausea. ESCOP (European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy) lists its internal use for tension, restlessness, irritability, and the symptomatic treatment of digestive disorders, such as mild spasms; externally, for herpes labialis (ESCOP, 1997).
