What can I do with all this lemon balm? Answered
Last summer, I rescued some plants from a friend's window box that were looking dangerously wilty. The basil and parsley died, but the lemon balm took root like a weed and now covers a two foot square patch of my garden to about knee height. It's going to have to be cut back before it takes over the rest of the garden like tiberium, so does anyone have suggestions for what I can do with a bushel of citrus-y herb? I hear the essential oil is used in aromatherapy and has antibacterial and insect repellent properties- should I make like Kiteman and distil some oil?
