Lemon Balm

Nature is often the best chemist.

The power of a plant, lemon balm, many people in the UK will find in their garden, has been recently reported by Professor Paul Chazot (Pain Academy Lead) and long term colleague in Nigeria, Dr Ben Chindo, to have potential rational use in managing both epilepsy and chronic pain. Based on Prof Chazot's recommendations, lemon balm essential oil and massage has been used for the last 20 years, in helping people in local hospices in County Durham and Teesside, to manage their severe agitation and chronic pain.
