Melissa Leaf Essential oil comes from a sweet smelling, bushy herb that grows up to 90 cm high with serrated leaves and tiny white or pink flowers. The high price of Melissa essential oil is due to the fact that approximately 3 tonnes of plant material is required in order to produce approximately 500 ml/16.66 fl.oz of Essential oil.
Also known as Lemon Balm, Melissa oil is expensive to produce and so is often aldulterated with much cheaper oils such as Lemongrass and Citronella.
The oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties making it useful to have for skin care preparations.
It is often used in Aromatherapy for its uplifting and positive enhancing qualities to treat stress and anxiety.
For External Cosmetic Use only
Pure Essential Oils should always be diluted with a carrier oil such as grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil before using on the skin.
A patch test is recommended to see if your skin is sensitive to the product.
If blending into creams, lotions, body butters etc, 1-2% maximum of the pure absolute oil or essential oil to 100% of the product is usually about right.
