What is Melissa Essential Oil?
What is Melissa Essential Oil? I have to admit when I found out there was an essential oil named Melissa, I was pretty excited. Now let me be the first to say this is NOT a frugal oil. Which makes me chuckle. What I find ironic though however is the description of the oil suits me to a tee. This oil really resonates with me. I am excited that I was given a bottle of this rare oil and I treasure it. I don’t use it often but when I do I see great results.
I actually spoke to a Dr. about my health concerns in person and he highly suggested that I try Melissa to see if it would help me. I was excited because I had a bottle ready to try!
Melissa Essential Oil – Melissa officinalis
The most expensive and rare oil, Melissa essential oil has a sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance and is steam distilled from the fresh flowering tops, leaves and stems of the Melissa officinalis plant. With a wide range of beneficial properties, Melissa can be used for calming the nerves, a positive affect on mood, and seasonal threats. Because the Melissa plant has an oil yield of less than 1/10 of 1%, it is one of the most commonly adulterated oils. For aromatic, topical, or dietary use.

Isn’t that hilarious!
I have Melissa but haven’t used it yet. Can you elaborate on how you use pretty please?! Thanks!!
I personally use it for anxiety. I have also used it for acne.
Do you have a high anxiety level and does it work well for your anxiety? I’m asking because I’m thinking of possibly having my hubby try it. With PTSD and TBI (traumatic brain injury) his anxiety can be through the roof. Thanks in advance
I have a moderate anxiety level. Not high. Have you tried eliminating gluten from his diet?
Would be nice if it was actually available. I have been trying to get melissa for a year already.
I know! It is so sad that it is no longer available. I would suggest an amazon search (you will pay for it though).
I have been told by our up-line doTERRA Melissa will be out in March 2016. Not sure of exact date.
I just bought mine from doterra so it’s available. I had no idea it was even out of stock. I suppose I got lucky?? I have anxiety so I’m on day two of using it 🙂
It’s definitely the most expensive oil, along with Rose. Young Living has it in stock for $160/5ml bottle member price.
Wow! This is exciting news!
Melissa will be available after the 15th March 2016. Not sure for how long though
Doterra just made it available again!!!!
It just came out today!
Its available now!!!! Go get it!
I read somewhere that doTERRA Melissa may become available again in Spring of 2016, and Roman Chamomile sometime in 2017. I don’t know if this is fact or wishful thinking, but it gives me hope. I’ll patiently wait for doTERRA to bring these two fabulous oils back.
That would be AMAZING!
I’ve used this oil for cold sores. If applied before full eruption nothing manifested. And dries out sore faster than anything else if sore is already there.
Waiting and waiting for this oil!!!
How do you use Melissa for anxiety take it or what ?
Apply it to the base of your neck or wrists or inhale it.
