Melissa Essential Oil is also commonly known as Lemon Balm Essential Oil. It is steam distilled from the wonderfully fragrant flowers and leaves of the perennial Melissa officinalis herb nurtured in the Bulgarian countryside. It is considered one of the most powerfully medicinal essential oils in all of aromatherapy, with a bright, lemony, herbaceous aroma that most individuals find very pleasant and uplifting. The herb received the name "Melissa" because of its sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance, which is known to attract bees (Melissa is Greek for "honey bee").
A luscious herb with a sweet aroma, Melissa has serrated leaves and petite white and pink flowers. Both the flowers and the leaves are put through a steam distillation method to extract and capture the essential oil. An exceptionally low yield (about 0.05%) makes Melissa Oil a very costly oil and one that is commonly adulterated with inexpensive oils like Lemongrass, Citronella and Litsea Cubeba. Known by many to be a true aromatic elixir, Melissa's unassuming power makes it a vital component of any essential oil pharmacy.
