Melissa officinalis, also known as lemon balm, received the name “Melissa” because of its sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance, which was known to attract bees (Melissa is Greek for “honey bee”). As one of our rarest and most expensive oils, Melissa has a wide range of health benefits and uses.* Melissa is used as a flavor in teas and ice cream as well as with some fish dishes. Melissa has long been used to help calm feelings of tension and nervousness, when ingested. Diffusing Melissa at night can help initiate a restful sleep environment. Melissa may also help support a healthy immune system, when taken internally.*
• Diffuse at night or rub on forehead, shoulders, or chest.
• Diffuse to create a relaxing environment.
• Add to moisturizer or a spray bottle with water and spritz on face to rejuvenate skin.
Directions for use
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in four fluid ounces of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. See additional precautions below.
