About Bee Balm

The use of bee balm was recorded as early as the time of Native Americans when it was used as diaphoretic and was made into tea that was consumed for relaxation. During this time, it was used for a wide range of other medicinal purposes that included healing wounds and soothing bee stings (hence the name bee balm). The bee balm is also referred to as Oswego tea because of its origins with the Oswego people who made tea out of the leaves. The Native Americans taught their knowledge of the plant to the European colonists and the seeds were then sent to England by the Europeans. One of the chief facilitators was a John Bartram of Philadelphia who sent seeds to England in the mid-1700s. The seeds were then spread from England to several other parts of Europe where they were naturalized and are still cultivated in modern times with the names gold Melissa and Indian nettle.

It also served as alternative tea that the American revolutionaries used when they boycotted British tea due to the unwanted taxes.  For this reason, the plant holds a significant place in American history and evolution.

The plant also bears the name of Bergamot which roots from its fragrant scent that is often likened to the scent of the bergamot orange.
