Also called Lemon Balm or Balm Mint, Melissa’s sweet name belies its powerful properties. The herb was once called the ‘elixir of life’ and modern research demonstrates antiviral activity as well as calming tonic properties for the nervous system and digestive system.

Nature/Essence – Calming & Restorative

Studies show Melissa essential oil can help manage herpes infections of the skin including cold sores and shingles when applied directly to the blister (avoid surrounding skin as it may irritate).

Melissa calms and settles an upset digestive system, especially beneficial when related to nervous tension. It is also said to be calming to the heart during times of stress or emotional upheaval.

Melissa is an uplifting yet calming oil to restore an overstimulated or overwhelmed nervous system and soothe an agitated mind. It is recommended for those suffering emotional trauma or shock.
