Your website is showing that lemon balm is the same thing as bee balm when in fact they are two different genomes entirely. This could be very misleading and someone could mix up the two and possibly have a very different experience (Possibly not pleasant) if they were to start using bee balm instead of lemon balm as a supplement. I think this should be changed immediately. (That's done - thank you for the comment, Liz)
