Fresh Bee Balm Flowers
USDA Certified 100% Organic
Scarlet Bee Balm (Monarda didyma) was used in Oswego tea, named after the indigenous Oswego people in present-day New York, who used it as an antiseptic, for stomach aches, and to treat sore throats. The tubular red flowers, which split into two lips at the end, form a roughly 2-3 inch cluster that resembles a beautifully colored water fountain, spraying from its center.

Bee Balm is also often called Bergamot, as American Settlers used it as a substitute for Earl Grey tea (usually flavored with the oil from the Bergamot Orange) after the Boston Tea Party when English teas were unavailable.
