Monarda (Bee Balm) (Monarda didyma)
Also called: Oswego Tea, Bee Balm, American Bee Balm, Horsemint, Indian Nettle, Scarlet Bee Balm, Wild Bergamot, Red Bergamot
Parts used: Flowers, leaves
{Infusions} made of the dried and fresh leaves of this herb are drunk as a tea which has a myriad of positive side effects including being a diuretic, calming unsettled stomachs, being carminative, regulating the menstrual cycle, and it also contains thymol.
Its flavour is remniscent of Earl Grey, and the aroma of the plant and flowers is very much like that of the bergamot orange. Volatile oils made from Bee Balm are used in Aromatherapy for their stress-relieving ability and their tendancy to soothe sore throats.

WARNING: May cause photosensitivity.
