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 has a wide range of benefits and uses. Melissa is used as a flavour in teas and ice cream as well as with some fish dishes. Because of its positive uplifting scent, Melissa has long been used ito soothe and promote a sense of centeredness and balance.
