Description
Melissa essential oil has a strong, fresh, herbal aroma with lemony notes—which explains its other name, “lemon balm.” Melissa oil is deeply comforting, especially during times of heartbreak or loss. Since ancient times, melissa has also been used to comfort and restore the body. Use it to soothe urgent skin issues, and in topical blends to reduce germs or fungi. Our certified organic melissa essential oil is steam distilled from the bright green, mint-like leaves of herbs nurtured in the Bulgarian countryside. The word “melissa” means “honey-bee”—bees love the plants!
Suggested Uses

Purify - Germs

When co-workers start sniffling, blend a few drops of melissa into lotion for an immune-supporting, germ-reducing hand moisturizer.

Relax - Sleep

Melissa’s relaxing effects can come on slowly. Add a few drops to an inhaler and start using it a few hours before bed.

Relieve - Soreness

Protect an acute, distressing skin issue with a recovery blend of melissa diluted in aloe vera gel.

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
