How do you dry bee balm and is it as effective when dried.

Greetings Bette, I found the easiest way to dry bee balm (I grow the fistulosa, lavender to purple blooms, variety) is in the oven with only the light on (40 watt bulb heats my oven to 98-100 degrees) keeping the door closed. It takes 48 - 72 hours. The leaves and flowers dry perfectly using this method. The scent remains very aromatic. I've read elsewhere that this form of drying retains the chemical contents.

I’m attempting to figure out a couple of personalized tea blends to assist with clinical abortion recovery. I assume that adaptogens are to be avoided post-administration? The procedure relies on a chemical progesterone blocker, so finding and deciding on herbs has been difficult. I need herbs that help with menses - pain, moods, blood cleansing and general detoxification - but want to avoid interfering with the hormonal effects induced by the medications (at least initially). Any recommendations?

I have a chance to order bergamot plants aka bee balm. I'm learning it is different than bergamot oil which is orange or citrus based. I use the E.O. in diffuser or sprays to help sleep.
I had hoped I could combine Bergamot aka Bee Balm with Valerian and chamomile to make a tincture to aid with my lousy sleep.
