Lemon balm . Melissa officinalis
A perennial herb in the mint family Lamiaceae, Lemon Balm is the herb of sustainable healing, that you see to the left. How did it come to be my logo?
When studying herbs the best way to really know any plant is to develop a deep relationship with the plant. Most of my herbal explorations have been in urban environments and, simply put, Lemon Balm is the herb that I connected with in all ways at all times.

As the years have passed I have come to feel like I truly know this plant and as though we do share many qualities!

Herbal wisdom is incorporated into individual sessions and seasonal food workshops. Individual herbal workshops will also be posted on the events page and blog. Keep an eye out.
