ORGANIC ESSENTIAL OIL
“Balm causes the mind and heart to be merry.”
Avicenna, Arab physician (980-1037)
Organic Melissa essential oil is one of the most valued essential oils on the market.
It is so hard to get drops of essential oil from this precious plant. Maybe because of the value it brings, which is becoming more important today. It is related to the support of coping with everyday stresses by providing a natural boost of energy. Melissa essential oil is rich in geranium and neral/citral, which give it a characteristic gentle, fresh, citrus scent and aroma, so appreciated among consumers.
Organic Melissa essential is using as a flavor component in food products, including alcoholic (bitters, vermouths, etc.) and nonalcoholic beverages, in low dosages.
Our Melissa - Lemon balm essential oil (Melissa officinalis) is 100% organic & pure. Its safety, in terms of heavy metals and radioactive particles, is confirmed analytically.
It is obtained by steam distillation of the plant’s leaves and stems, organically grown in Europe, on the South East of Serbia.

Old Time’s Lessons
Dioscorides gave at the De La Materia Medicinal that a decoction of the leaves (taken as a drink with wine, and also applied) is good for those touched by scorpions, or bitten by harvest spiders or dogs. It is suitable for women’s hip baths for moving the menstrual flow, as a mouth rinse for toothache, and as an enema or suppository for dysentery. A decoction of the leaves (taken as a drink with saltpeter [potassium nitrate]) helps those who are ill from mushrooms or griping. Taken as a linctus [syrup] it helps difficult breathing, and applied with salt it dissolves scrofulous tumors [goiters] and cleans ulcers. Smeared on, it lessens the pains of gout.
Melissa herb was highly esteemed by Paracelsus, who believed it could completely revivify a man. Herbalist John Evelyn (1620 -1706) described melissa as the ruler of the brain, strengthening the memory and removing melancholy. (Grieve M. A modern herbal – Vol. II. Dover Publications, New York, 1971.).
Avicenna recommended melissa for strengthening the heart. A spirit of balm made by combining lemon peel, nutmeg, angelica root, and other herbs and spices enjoyed a great reputation under the name of Carmelite water. This was considered beneficial for the treatment of nervous headaches, digestive problems, and neuralgic affections (Grieve M. A modern herbal – Vol. II. Dover Publications, New York, 1971.)
In traditional European medicine, the melissa herb was used for the treatment of melancholy and for enhancing memory. Greek physicians used melissa to treat wounds (Khan I, Abourashed E. Leung’s encyclopedia of common natural ingredients used in food, drugs, and cosmetics. 3rd ed. John Wiley & Sons, New Jersey, 2010.)…
