Also known as scarlet, lavender, purple, or wild bergamot, Beebalm is native to the eastern US and favored by pollinators like bees and hummingbirds. Beebalm has fragrant leaves and presents beautiful red or purple flowers that look like fireworks.

Scientific research on the clinical effects of Beebalm is lacking, but several of the components found in the essential oil from some species indicate that there may be something to its traditional use in treating wounds and protecting against infection.  It has been suggested that these properties may make some species of Beebalm also effective against the symptoms of altitude sickness caused by dehydration.
