One of the most precious oils in aromatherapy, it takes up to 5 tonnes of fresh melissa to make just 2lbs of pure Melissa Essential Oil. This is why it’s often adulated with cheaper lemon essential oil. Ours is true melissa.
Really a true melissa (Melissa Officinalis). Fabulous smell. Not lemon smell.I do not know why all the aromatherapists on the Internet write about the lemon smell. This is not true. Melissa always smells of the bitter crust of lemon, on which a small spoon of honey from linden flowers. I know how real melissa acts on my health. I often ripped the leaves of melissa in the garden and made tea. I was 12 years old. Now I'm 48 years old. Nothing changed. Melissa makes me feel tired, as if I've been on the beach all day and been scorched in the sun. In addition, when I drink a cup of tea with melissa (it grows in my country and in my city in every small forest and it is grown in its private suburban gardens), it causes mild asthenia. But this is only in the first 2 minutes. Then it evokes a feeling of complete calm and tranquility. The action of a persistent antidepressant with the effect of deep calm.I would rather call this feeling euphoric, when bad thoughts disappear. And come self-confidence and a feeling of complete happiness and comfort.
