Lemon Balm is considered a key ingredient to the Rin'GO Anti-Stress nose ring, and the history of using it dates back to the ancient Greeks and Romans.
A member of the mint family, the lemon scent of the lemon balm plant (not a lemon tree) is known for alleviating stress and anxiety. It has been promoted in the Middle Ages by apothecaries to help calm people and promote sleep as well as improve appetites and ease the pain.
Medically, it is still considered a benefit for indigestion, gas, bloating, and colic. More recently, scientists are studying the use of lemon balm to help with Alzheimer's patients, and for lowering people's blood sugar levels.
The lemon balm plant is known to attract bees and supposedly keeps them close to the hive. Often, lemon balm is teamed up with geranium and lavender leaves, oils from grapefruit, tangerines, and wild oranges as well as spicy oils like cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
At Rin'GO the lemon balm is paired up with mint to help specifically with the Rin'GO Anti-Stress ring, and to make you relax.
