Steam distilled from the fresh aerial parts of the Melissa (Melissa officinalis) plant, Essential Oil is revered amongst oil users. This high quality Melissa Essential Oil is 100% pure and undiluted with absolutely no additives or fillers.
This plant from the Mediterranean region grows to about 60 cm (2 feet) and likes soil with a high iron content and has small serrated slightly hairy leaves and small white-pink flowers.
The flowers are very attractive to bees; the name ‘Melissa’ is the Greek word for honeybee and is also know as “lemon balm’ or in Hebrew ‘Bal-Smin” meaning ‘Chief of oils.’ When you open a bottle of Melissa your senses will be taken over by the fresh, lemony scent that is uplifting and calming during times of gloom and extreme worry. Only a small amount is necessary to enjoy its incredible therapeutic properties.
Melissa Essential Oil possesses a wonderfully fresh, lemony, green and slightly herbaceous character. It’s a delightful aroma that many find pleasant.
