Bergamot, also known as bee balm or oswego-tea, are hardy native American perennials that have been garden favorites for decades. Bee Balm is a very pretty herb with a wonderful fruity, minty aroma.

An infusion is medicinal used internally in the treatment of colds, catarrh, headaches, gastric disorders, to reduce low fevers and soothe sore throat, to relieve flatulence, nausea, menstrual pain, and insomnia.

Bee balm is known to stimulate the production of bile. A bee balm extract injected into mice had sedative properties in tests. Very low doses of the extract in combination with a dose of barbiturate too low to sedate a mouse resulted in sleep.
