Melissa Essential Oil

Melissa Essential Oil – Organic


100% Pure Organic Essential Oil

A fine distillation of certified organic Melissa officinalis. Steam-distilled in Bulgaria from the flowering tops and leaves of organically grown Melissa, also known as Lemon Balm.



This Melissa Essential Oil from the Bulgarian region is known as the
elixir of life because of its ability to uplift, revitalize and fortify the mind, body and soul. Despite being from the mint family Lamiaceae, this oil has no minty note at all, it does smell sweet, strong lemony with a Honeyed Rose/Geranium note.

Commonly known as balm or lemon balm, Melissa is a hardy herbaceous perennial native to southern Europe. It has wrinkled and toothed, pale-green, nettle-like leaves, with tiny white or yellowish flowers in June and July. The whole plant is fragrant, with a strong lemony smell. It makes a good garden plant, but it also grows wild in Europe, carpeting fields and woods.

The harvest takes place in May and June, just before the blossoms develop. The oil is steam distilled from the leaves and tops, and is pale yellow with an agreeable and subtle, warm, lemony aroma.

Pure Melissa essential oil has nervine, anti-depressant, anti-septic, anti-viral and tonic properties. It is not common oil and is so rare
and precious – it’s very special!
