Howling at the Moon and Sipping Some Tea
Here is the Lemon Balm I made during the recent Full Moon. I've made plenty of Solar Infusions before, but never a Lunar Infusion.
To make a Lunar Infusion, you fill up a crystal or glass bowl with the herb you've chosen and some water. Set it out uncovered over-night. Drink when you first wake-up. Easy, right?
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) is a relaxing herb that primarily acts as a sedative and is mildly anti-spasmodic. I drink Lemon Balm tea when I'm very exhausted. It's also terrific for mild stomach aliments, plus it has a great lemon taste! Yummy!
