Hi, I'm Dr. Ahuva Gamliel from MiBaSo in sunny South Florida. Our topic today is how to harvest lemon balm. Lemon balm's Latin name is Melissa Officinalis. It has many medicinal properties such as it is unnerving which means it's great for calming. Well here we have a lemon balm plant and you can start harvesting once you have between six to ten inches of growth or once you have at least three leaves coming out of the stem. You are going to need a sharp pair of cutters or scissors in order to prevent damaging the plant. So you're going to just snip right underneath where the petals come together and you can use your snippets and you can dry them, you can use them in herbal teas. You can cook with them or any other herbal preparations. This will help to promote the growth of your plant. I'm Dr. Ahuva Gamliel. Thanks for watching, be well.
