- First Flush Harvest: Our Lemon Balm is harvested during the first flush, right after the winter dormant period. This timing allows the plant to produce more active ingredients, resulting in higher essential oil content. Typically, farmers sell this first flush harvest to oil distilling companies, but we've partnered with our farmers to bring this unique offer directly to you.
