DESCRIPTION

Melissa, Balm Mint or Lemon Balm is common herb with a long history of medicinal use.oil.  It is known as a digestive and nervous system tonic. The oil also has also been reported to be effective in relieving rashes caused by the Herpes simplex virus. As several tonnes of herb are required to produce a kilo of essential oil, true Melissa oil will always be an expensive commodity though thankfully only a drop of two is needed at a time. Due to this high cost of production, many oils promoted as Melissa are in fact blends of other cheaper oils such as Lemongrass and Citronella so do be wary of cheap imitations.
