Melissa Essential Oil: Melissa officinalis
Also known as “sweet oil” and “the elixir of life,” Melissa oil can promote restful sleep and emotional well-being and support the health of many bodily systems.*
Uses: Aromatic, Topical, Internal
Melissa oil is named after the Greek word for “honey bee” because its delicious citrus aroma attracts them so easily. This essential oil has been used for centuries to promote overall emotional and physical well-being. It can be used as an effective sleep aid, leveraging its calming and tension-reducing properties to invite restful sleeping patterns. It can also be used to promote the bodily functions that help to regulate blood pressure and cholesterol levels, as well as the digestive system and the systems that filter toxins from the body.* Its antibacterial properties help to fight off infections and illness, and may help to overcome fevers, and can even be used to create a gentle, non-toxic homemade surface cleaner.
Directions for Use
Diffusion: Use 3-4 drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in four ounces of liquid or place 1-2 drops directly on the tongue or roof of the mouth.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area.
Melissa oil is non-toxic, but users should exercise caution when using internally or topically. Avoid consuming in doses of more than 1-2 drops, especially when not diluted, and consider combining with a lotion or carrier oil when applying topically. Never substitute use of essential oils for prescribed medications.
