Due to its citrusy, fresh aroma, balm leaf extract is well suited for flavouring alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, desserts, confectionery or Mediterranean dishes.*

Due to the positive properties of balm leaves, the extract is also suitable for use in food supplements, especially in preparations for the night.*

The extract has a citrus-like, invigorating smell and can therefore be used as a fragrance in cosmetic products and perfumes. Moreover, balm leaf extract has antiviral and antibacterial effects [4].*
