Melissa Essential Oil
Melissa is an uplifting, mood-boosting oil used by Ancient Greeks and Romans over two thousand years ago for its reviving, revitalising effects. These days the oil is popular for its soothing, pain-relieving qualities and is still used for its powerful ability to lift low moods. Melissa oil is antibacterial oil due to its many antibacterial components and can help to prevent infections. It can even combat strains of the herpes virus and so may act as a useful home remedy for cold sores. The oil also has anti-inflammatory effects and is often used to soothe sore muscles and clear up skin irritations. Melissa oil is also good for our minds and is considered a calming, uplifting oil.
Our 100% Pure Melissa (Lemon Balm) Essential Oil has a rich, lemony scent with a pleasant brightness and is pale yellow in colour. It is extracted from the melissa herb native to Europe and Asia. Pure (Absolute) Melissa oil is very expensive, and so this oil has been produced via a less expensive method.
