It can be grown in any well drained soil; it is particularly tolerant of poor, sandy soils, and can withstand the full force of the sun.

Lemon Balm has effective sedative action and is typically made into a pleasant, lemony-tasting tea.  Try making a tea with 2 teaspoons of dried Lemon Balm per cup of boiling water.  Let the tea sit for 10 minutes, strain, and drink right before going to bed.
