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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
