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”). A highly sought after oil, Melissa has a wide range of benefits and uses. Melissa is used as a flavor in teas and ice cream and is some times used in fish dishes. Melissa has long been used to help create a relaxing, comforting environment. Diffusing Melissa at night can help initiate a restful sleep environment. More confirming clinical research is needed, but preclinical studies suggest Melissa may help support a healthy inflammatory response, when taken internally.*



  • Diffuse to create a relaxing environment.
  • Rub on forehead, shoulders, or chest.
  • Add a drop or two to flavor tea or homemade ice cream.

Directions For Use

Aromatic use: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
