Melissa essential oil has a sweet, slightly citrus aroma with herbaceous notes, and is pale yellow in colour. Melissa essential oil is extracted via steam distillation from the leaf of the Melissa plant, which is actually a member of the mint family.
The beautiful aroma makes it perfect for creating a relaxing atmosphere, in addition to being perfect for use in soap, cosmetic products and candles. Melissa oil also has anti-inflammatory properties which make it perfect for massage.
Pure (Absolute) Melissa oil is extremely expensive. Our Melissa oil possesses similar fragrance and comparable benefits as pure Melissa oil, but has been extracted via a less expensive method.
