“Balm of the heart’s delight!” Distilled from the common Lemon Balm Melissa oil has a captivatingly sweet, fresh, lemony aroma with a faint and pleasing earthy note. The aroma is characteristically fresh and clean, not medicinal or citronella murky.

The yield of Melissa oil with steam distillations is low, and can be under a tenth of a percent. It takes approximately three tons of plant material to yield 1/2 kilo of the pure essential oil. Also very few distillations are even attempted thus the high cost of this rare herbal essential oil. Most of the Melissa oil found in the commercial marketplace are adulterations with Lemongrass and Citronella.

Melissa essential oil has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties. It has been used effectively for treating herpes lesions. It may useful for treating various infectious diseases such as flu virus, smallpox and mumps.

Robert Tisserand’s research indicates that Melissa blended with Rose Otto is an effective treatment against shingles and cold sores. 

Dementia agitation may be relieved with Melissa oil. A recent study cited in the Journal of Complimentary Medicine reported Melissa oil to be a safe and effective treatment for the management of agitation in severe dementia. The study indicated that true pure Melissa oil significantly reduced agitation and enhanced quality of life.

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) study of patients with mild to moderate symptoms using Melissa herbal essential oil experienced significant benefits in cognition after 16 weeks of treatment.

Psycho-emotionally, Melissa’s delightfully fresh scent may ameliorate anger and help restore the heart’s natural rhythm of giving and receiving, allowing and accepting. Melissa may also be helpful for integrating overwhelming feelings like shock, grief, terror and rage.

As with Helichrysum oil Melissa may help resolve past emotional trauma associated with early childhood memories, or unconscious ancestral patterns.

BLEND WITH: Rose, Geranium, Frankincense

CAUTIONS: Use Melissa in very low dilutions of 1-2%, or less, as it is a strong skin irritant.
