An important aromatherapy essential oil, Melissa, or Lemon Balm, is a potent antiviral with sedative, anti-depressant with calming benefits. Melissa is said to help with nervous and emotional disorders such as anxiety, restlessness, and melancholy. Robert Tisserand writes that Melissa is “sedative, calming, antidepressant. It slows the respiration and pulse, lowers the blood pressure, and has an antispasmodic effect on smooth muscle.”

Melissa officinalis is a perennial herb yielding less than 0.10 of 1% essential oil. The amount of fresh leaves required to produce 1 Kilogram of this precious oil is between 6 and 7 tons. As a result, true Melissa oil is rare and one of the most commonly adulterated oils. Exercise caution, Melissa essential oil with “too good to be true” pricing is likely to be adulterated and will lack the aroma-therapeutic properties of true Melissa oil.

Part of our quality control involves GC/MS testing to validate purity and percentage of compounds. The main compounds in this Melissa essential oil from France are Sesquinterpenes (Beta-Caryophyllene 18.77%, Germacrene D 6.47%, alpha-Humulene 1.68%) and Aldehydes (Geranial 25.53%, Citronellal 4.27%, Neral 18.74%).

Although Melissa is one of the most expensive essential oils it is very potent and should therefore be used sparingly…a little goes a long way!
