Lemon Balm is a wonderful herb for your animals and also for you! it is very good for calming the nerves and can be used alongside chamomile and Valerian (if not competing) to help an anxious horse/dog/cat. It helps relieve gas and muscle tension, both signs of stress.
lemon balm is antiviral and it also has antihistamine properties that make it a great choice for keeping insects at bay. It also supports the immune system and the skin and any related anxiety issues.
It has been called the "Elixir of Life" by Anthony Williams, which makes it one of our top choices for ourselves and for our animals.
