With the ability to positively affect mood, melissa essential oil is often used to reduce tense feelings, promote relaxation, and calm feelings of nervousness.*
Melissa officinalis, also known as lemon balm, received the name “Melissa” because of its sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance, which was known to attract bees (Melissa is Greek for “honey bee”). As one of our rarest and most expensive oils, melissa essential oil has a wide range of health benefits and uses.* Melissa is used as a flavor in teas and ice cream as well as with some fish dishes. Because of its positive effect on mood, melissa has long been used to calm feelings of tension and nervousness. Diffusing melissa essential oil at night can help initiate a restful sleep environment and promote emotional well-being. Melissa may also help to support a healthy immune system.*
Some of my favorite ways to use melissa essential oil:
– Diffuse at night or rub on forehead, shoulders, or chest to help lessen feelings of stress and promote emotional well-being.
– Diffuse to create a relaxing environment that encourages a restful night’s sleep.
– Add to moisturizer or a spray bottle with water and spritz on face to rejuvenate skin and refresh the mind.

Every essential oil has an emotional component. Melissa essential oil is the Oil of Light. It awakens the soul to truth and light. It reminds individuals of who they truly are and why they came to this earth. Melissa essential oil invites one to release everything and anything that holds them back from reaching their fullest potential. When an individual feels weighed down by the burdens of life, melissa essential oil encourages them to keep going. (This excerpt taken from Emotions and Essential Oils: A Modern Resource for Healing)
