About Melissa Herb
Melissa, a favorite herb often used in herbal teas, belongs to the mint family and is native to the Mediterranean region and Western Asia. Widely cultivated in Turkey, Melissa is also known as “Son Grass,” used traditionally behind beehives to protect bees from diseases and encourage swarming.
The herb can be brewed alone or with other herbs like chamomile and puncturevine. Its fresh leaves can be added to cold beverages, especially in the summer. The leaves can be incorporated into soups, fish dishes, pilafs, and salads like fruit salad.
Its soothing effects can be enjoyed by adding it to bathwater.
