Absolute Aromas Essential Oil: Melissa 3% Dilution 10ml
True Melissa has a delicate, lemony, herbaceous aroma which uplifts and comforts the mind.
Melissa is a herb which has been known for hundreds of years in Europe, sometimes as Balm or Lemon Balm. Unfortunately, Melissa is one of the most adulterated and copied essential oils and genuine Melissa oil makes up only a small fraction of the amount that is sold commercially.
Absolute Aromas is delighted to have found an excellent source of True Melissa oil, produced in very small quantities in Southern Ireland.
For convenience we have diluted this Melissa to a ratio of 3% in Jojoba, it can therefore be used directly on the skin as a perfume.
For the ultimate luxury bath, try 2 drops of Melissa with 1 drop of Rose in 10ml of Jojoba, added to warm bath water.
