We all suffer from tummy problems at some point or another and there are a few herbal remedies, such as peppermint and chamomile, that we often turn to in order to alleviate the symptoms.

Another one to try when you're next suffering from the discomfort of tummy troubles, such as bloating, IBS, gas, indigestion and heart burn, is lemon balm.

2. Horrid Herpes

Lemon balm contains a chemical property called terpenes, which is thought to have antiviral properties.

Therefore, creams and ointments containing lemon balm are said to help treat those nasty cold sores that many people get when they're feeling run down.

Studies indicate that lemon balm may also be able to treat conditions such as genital herpes and shingles.

3. Irritating Insomnia

If you suffer from insomnia then you will know how debiliating it can be.

Chamomile, hops and valerian are frequently touted as the insomniac's go-to herbal cure.
