Beebalm Interesting Notes

Beebalm's fragrance is intoxicating. After working with or near Beebalm for several hours I have "flash backs" of its' fragrance all day. The more you smell it the more you want to smell it. Like lavender, the scent is spicy and strong. Deer just can't stand it! - www.mydeergarden.com
