1 - 2 fresh lemon balm leaves
For some people, lemon balm can help for cold sores.
At the first signs of a cold sore, crush a few fresh lemon balm leaves and apply them directly to the affected area.
Lemon balm can have the following effects:
- Stimulates the appetite
- Promotes sleep
As it can affect thyroid function, persons with thyroid problems shouldn’t use lemon balm. Take care when driving as it makes you sleepy.
