Melissa is a member of the mint family. It's also known as lemon balm for the lemon scent and bee balm because bees love it. 

Melissa tea or bath infusion gives a calming effect. Internal use soothes the stomach. External use calms the mind and muscles. 

Culinary uses find Melissa in salads as well as herbs in jams, vinegars, and meat-stuffing.
