Melissa Essential Oil
Melissa officinalis, also known as lemon balm, received the name Ã¢Â€ÂœMelissaÃ¢Â€Â because of its sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance, which was known to attract bees (Melissa is Greek for Ã¢Â€Âœhoney beeÃ¢Â€Â). As one of our rarest and most expensive oils, Melissa has a variety of benefits and uses and is known for its calming fragrance. Melissa is used as a flavor in teas and ice cream as well as with some fish dishes. Diffuse to create a relaxing fragrance at home.
