Bee balm has several uses in one’s health and wellbeing. Bee balm is especially helpful for digestive and respiratory issues. I am not growing bee balm and do not have any near me, but it does grow wild throughout the US.
Bee balm, very much like hyssop, is especially useful for stomach viruses. It is a carminative used for gas, bloating, rumbling in the tummy issues, diarrhea, nausea, and general upset stomach. This makes bee balm a powerful ally for stomach issues that are especially caused by a virus.
Bee balm is a nervine that is also helpful for tension headaches, but is also known to help with cold and flu respiratory symptoms. Fever? Bee balm can also help with breaking it.
