Well, we just made up a batch of lemon balm popsicles.
Not only are they delicious and cooling they are also soothing and calming.
With all the excitement and activity of summer, some lemon balm can help bring the kids’ energy down a bit and allow them to settle into a quiet afternoon activity.
To make them, simply cut some fresh lemonbalm. You can use 4 tablespoons on dried as well.
I cut up enough for two loosely packed cups of plant material and added it to a half-gallon jar.
Then simply fill the jar with boiling water, and let it steep for about 20 minutes (for dried as well).
Strain and add honey to taste. I added about 2 tablespoons.
Pour into popsicle molds or simply into ice cube trays.
Freeze for a few hours and enjoy!
