It can be used in mouthwashes, foot baths to relieve odor and/or itching. It is also useful as a wash for minor cuts and scrapes. Bee Balm has been used for spells for developing psychic powers, protection, and fertility.
Bergamot tea is useful for fever and stomach problems and can be used as a gentle sleep aid. Simmer the leaves for 10 minutes to bring out their full flavor.
