Lemon balm has quickly become one of my favorite herbs. Look back through this site to see how I've used lemon balm for anxiety, lemon balm for weight loss, and other lemon balm tea benefits.
What did I think of Vimergy lemon balm?
I searched through amazon to find a pure, highly rated lemon balm extract. I didn't want one with alcohol or any other additives. Luckily, I found Vimergy - a glycerin based extract. The ratings were high, the ingredients were good, and the price was reasonable.
We are growing lemon balm in the backyard. It's gorgeous. I planted it by seed, and it has continued to give plenty of leaves each summer. I dry the leaves and store them for winter. But all the cutting does take it's toll and there is usually about 3 weeks in early April when I run out. Just shy of the first growth in May.
- It tastes great - like a sweet liquid. Most glycerites seem to taste about the same to me. I mixed in to my morning tea (I drink my tea iced) or just took a dropper by mouth. Since I don't normally sweeten my tea, the added sweetness was a nice treat.
- The bottle lasted about a month of daily use. Pretty reasonable, all things considered.
- I didn't notice a change in my mood. This is a good thing! When I run out of lemon balm, the darkness usually returns quickly. I'm still working on the psychological aspects, but lemon balm clearly helps me deal with anxiety from a physiological perspective. Not losing my good moods is a good sign.
- Shipping was fast and easy.
I will definitely buy this again, and it's a great choice for anyone just starting out with lemon balm extracts. Lemon balm has had a profound impact on my anxiety, has helped my skin tone and is maybe helping with body composition.
