MELISSA OIL, BULGARIA

Latin Name: Melissa officinalis

Part of Plant: Leaf

Country of Origin: Bulgaria

Method of Production: Steam Distillation

 

Melissa officinalis, also known as bee balm, lemon balm, or most commonly Melissa, is a flowering perennial herb that is a member of the Lamiaceae (formally Labiatae) botanical family that is now cultivated worldwide.  As a member of the mint family, the leaves are usually used as a culinary herb that can be added to things like salads and soups and they are also popular in herbal teas/tisanes.  Like Dragonhead oil, the low yield of Melissa causes it to be one of the most expensive essential oils.

 

Melissa essential oil has a lemony, citrus-like aroma similar to Lemongrass and Dragonhead, that blends well with most citrus, floral, and mint oils.  Try blending with oils like Lemon, Bergamot, Rosemary, Peppermint, or Basil for a stimulating and invigorating blend to start out your workday.  Also, consider blending with oils like Lavender, Neroli, Sandalwood, and Wild Orange for a relaxing diffuser blend.

 

Usage ideas:

  • Add a few drops of essential oils to a diffuser, cotton round, or a tissue.

For convenience on the go…

  • Properly dilute with your choice of carrier oils in a roller bottle.

  • Add up to a total of 15 drops of essential oils to a personal aromatic inhaler (aroma stick).

    Now younger than her years!

    Remy, my 9 year old black mouth cur and favorite walking buddy, highly recommends Dr. P's Doggie Drops! Since starting those she has a spring in her step and a smile on her face!

    Review of mobile website

    The website is pretty, visually, and it appears to be easy to navigate. My suggestion though, because it's infuriating to me, is that when I go to check out a specific oil, and read reviews on it, when I go back to shopping, it takes me back to the very first page of the essential oils. It is aggravating when I am down into the site by four or five pages and I get thrown back to the very beginning again. Anyway for you to fix this?

    I didn’t order online, but I did visit Crystal in the shop! Wow! What a wonderful experience!

    These are some of the oils that I purchased today from her, and I am absolutely pleased with their quality!

    I will definitely be returning to expand my collection from this amazing business!

    4 Back leg surgeries

    My 10 year old Australian Shepherd has had both back leg CCL's repaired and one leg had to have 3 surgeries. She still walks and functions, but she also askes for her CBD oil. She doesn't take it everyday, but a few times a week. I really don't know what we would do without it. Thank You so much!
