Melissa essential oil, also known as Lemon Balm is distilled at our partner distillery in France and comes from a perennial herb in the mint family. This is one of the rarest and costly herbs to distill, but the health benefits and heavenly lemony scent make it one of the most sought-after essential oils to own. Studies show that Melissa Officinalis is very beneficial for your skin and can help support your immune system. It has a sedating effect that studies show to calm the heartbeat and palpitations. Melissa is also used to correct menstrual problems and is excellent in fighting cold sores and fungal infections.
The flowers are very attractive to bees; the name 'Melissa' is the Greek word for honeybee and is also know as "lemon balm' or in Hebrew 'Bal-Smin" meaning 'Chief of oils.'
Melissa Essential oil is an exclusive and treasured addition to the Jade Bloom collection and its therapeutic properties are antidepressant, antispasmodic, bactericidal, carminative, cordial, diaphoretic, emmenagogue, febrifuge, hypotensive, nervine, sedative, stomachic, sudorific and tonic.
