Bergamot Cut (Monarda Fistulosa)


Also known by its Latin name, Monarda Fistulosa, and most commonly under the name Bee Balm, Bergamot is native to North America and has a long history of use among the native tribes as well as the settlers that came after. A wide variety of native tribes recognized Bergamot for its medicinal properties, most commonly using it to treat colds in the form of an herbal tea. It was also widely used in the treatment of minor wounds as an antiseptic, and was similarly used to treat infections of the throat and mouth. Similarly today you can find it being used as a common ingredient within commercial mouthwash. Modern herbalists typically still adhere to the old wisdom concerning Bergamot. Despite modern medicine, it is still known to be a useful herbal alternative in treating both the cold and flu, and to this end it is still used within an herbal tea, much like the natives did before us; though a strong dose of honey is often added as well, to aid with the strong flavor.
