:clap: :clap: Yes Grantmissy - the Alias is lemonbalm :dance:

Native to south and central Europe, North Africa, Med, Central Asia
An oil, a flavouring, a preservative or mosquito repellent
all of these refer to lemon balm
It's all Greek to me honey bee - Greek for honey bee is Melissa, which is the genus name for lemon balm
This will make you calmer - one of the properties of lemon balm is its calming affect.

Thanks for playing along
