Definition


Carmelite water is an alcoholic extract sometimes called Eau de Carmes, that is obtained after distillation of freshly collected lemon balm leaves in alcohol. Its medicinal properties are indisputable. Carmelite water is used in cosmetology, as it undeniably has a positive effect on labial herpes and other skin diseases. Carmelite water also helps reduce anxiety and stress, and promotes sleep when it is mixed with other herbal sedatives such as valerian. It soothes digestive troubles and intestinal spasms, reduces premenstrual syndrome, and improves blood circulation.
