Melissa officinalis, known as lemon balm or balm mint, is a perennial herbaceous plant in the mint family Lamiaceae. The plant is native to south-central Europe, North Africa, the Mediterranean and Central Asia. It grows 70–150 cm (28–59 in) in height. The leaves have a gentle lemon scent, related to mint. During summer, the small white flowers fill with nectar and attract bees, hence the genus name Melissa (Greek for ‘honey bee’). Lemon Balm has been used as an herbal remedy to relieve insomnia and induce relaxation since Ancient Greece. Recent studies have shown that the plant is rich in volatile oils called terpenes, which have mild sedative properties and are effective at alleviating moderate anxiety and stress. Scientists have proven that Lemon Balm relieves stress, anxiety and sleeping disorders in animals.
Herbal extract infused Chocolate Balls
We created Herbal Chocolate Balls so we can bring you a more familiar and easy way of consumption. We use Chocolate powder and Honey in combination of our favourite Freeze-dried Extracts for best quality and effects.
As edibles, Herbal Chocolate Balls is a very effective and easy method of consumption. We use Chocolate Powder, as it has psychoactive properties of its own, mixed with our favourite freeze-dried extracts; which are very pure and active herbal extracts, and blend with real Honey. This makes it more bioavailable and tolerable to the taste, as some herbs would otherwise be too bitter, due to the concentration of extract. All our extract infused Chocolate Balls contain 50% extract and 50% Cocoa powder.
Normally a Chocolate Ball will take a few minutes to dissolve in your mouth. This makes it easier for Alkaloids and such to cross your blood-brain-barrier, for a faster onset. Simple!
