Lemon balm contains chemicals that seem to have a sedative and calming effect in fact, Lemon balm essential oil is popular in aromatherapy, where it's used to relieve stress and keep you calm. It has also been used to reduce the growth of some viruses and bacteria.

Studies have suggested that rosmarinic acid increases the levels and activity of a neurotransmitter in the brain known as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
