Melissa Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Home / Wellness / Melissa Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Melissa essential oil, also known as lemon balm, is one of the rarest and most expensive essential oils. It takes 66 lbs to fill one 5ml bottle of Melissa. Wow!

Although you can grow lemon balm in your backyard, true lemon balm from native land is in short supply these days. In fact, it’s been out of stock for years, but has recently come back in stock with a limited supply. Get it while you can because it’s worth the investment!

The sweet, fresh, sweet, fresh, citrus like fragrance attracts bees which is how Melissa got its name. Trivia Time! Melissa is the Greek word for honey bee.

Although the name is cute, Melissa pack a powerful punch when it comes to supporting the immune system and emotional health. Although it has been in short supply, you’ve probably experienced its benefits from the Protective Blend softgels or even the Joyful Blend essential oil. Now you can experience the benefits of Melissa essential oil on their own.

— IMPORTANT NOTES — Essential Oil Quality: The essential oil industry is not a regulated industry which means it’s difficult to know which brands you can trust to be truly 100% pure therapeutic grade and safe for your whole family. I did my research to find a brand I can trust. If you want to learn about the brand I personally use or order essential oils for your home, please email I’d love to support you in your oil journey.
