You can preserve the useful ingredients of lemon balm in a carrier oil in a very easy way. It can be prepared at home without any special equipment.

For what can be it used? Well, I mostly use it for homemade skincare products. The antibacterial and soothing properties of lemon balm make the oil perfect for skin maintaining. Also can be used for herpes simplex virus (HSV) – topical treatment, both genital and oral. But not only that, its anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and many other health properties from this plant is enough reason to have it in your herbal cabinet. You can read about all health benefits of the lemon balm plant at Lemon Balm Plant, Health Benefits, Uses, Dosing, and Interactions

This oil also can be used in cuisines. Actually, this is the secret of making very tasty pasta and salads.

The lemon balm oil is often confused with its essential oil. There is a difference between these two. The first one oil which we will prepare in this recipe is not so concentrated and that’s why it can be used alone or directly to the skin. To prepare it, we use a cold infusion or soft heating. Lemon balm essential oil is prepared with steam distillation. It is a longer process that makes it way more concentrated and that’s why can’t be used alone – you must dilute it with other carrier oil, otherwise, it can cause damage.

There is cold, sun, and heat infusion like I mentioned before. I will chouse cold infusion this time too. If you need the infused oil immediately, you can go with heat infusion.

You can use fresh or dried lemon balm. If you use the fresh one, leave it one night from the time is harvested to evaporate the remaining moisture, because it can spoil it.

My next post will be Lemon Balm Hand Balm Recipe in which I use this Infused oil. Also, you can read thyme, chamomile, sweet marjoram, and yarrow infused oil recipes.

Ok, lets go!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips,
    this blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.

    Fantastic blog!

    How long can this infused oil last at room temperature? How do you recommend it be stored?

    1. Bibe

      Hi Jen,

      If stored in a cool, dark place it can last up to 2 years. At room temperature it could last up to 1 year. Make sure that the room temperature does not exceed 25 degrees Celsius.

      Have a nice day 🙂

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about,
    why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you
    could be giving us something enlightening
    to read?
