Bergamot, also known as Bee Balm is a flower I remember from trips to my Great
Grandmothers in late summer. The colors and smells from these flowers are so
tremendously impressive. You will always see bees and butterfly’s hovering around
them. Bergamot depending on the flowers have flavors that hint of orange, lemon, and
sweet mint. I have always loved teas made from Bergamot.
Bergamot was used in many of my Great Grandmothers love spells charms and
bags. I remember going along beside her as she would go pick just the right flowers and
leaves for the magick she was working and teas she would brew.
The hundreds of bee’s that were flying around the brightly colored flowers
seemed to always begin chasing me. They never bother my Great Grandmother, but they hated me.
I imagine that’s probably where Bergamot got the name Bee Balm, and the bee’s
still don’t like to sharing this one.

remarkable things about her was her beautiful hair. Even at ninety+ she had healthy
looking long hair. It had turned to a dark silvery gray but even then thick and healthy.
