Lemon Balm is defintely a favourite herb.  A perennial that will come back year after year, quite vigorous so maybe best grown in a container.  Hairy, green leaves have the most gorgeous, lemon scent when crushed,  above which appears small white flowers during summer.  It will die back during winter but if like me, you will be waiting patiently come spring for the leaves to re-appear.  I have a lemon balm tea most days.  It is known for its calming and soothing properties.
