Yes, lemon balm is an herb.

Mint family?

Right, Mimi, lemon balm is an herb from the mint family.  Lemon balm essential oil is supposed to help with both cognition and relaxation.  Stimulating oils (such as clove, rosemary, and holy basil) are better to use in the morning and relaxing oils (such as lavender, sweet orange, and bergamot) are better to use in the evening.

I see several websites for making your own essential oils but I am not sure how difficult it is.
