Aromatherapy is an ancient art of using essential oils and it is known and used for centuries. Even the old Egyptians, Greeks, Indians, Chinese and Romans discovered its benefits. An interesting fact is that 5000 years ago Ancient Egyptians used essential oils to add them to hand creams and hair treatments. So, technically, we might call them the ”first aromatherapy people”.

Simplified, this is the alternative medicine form that uses concentrated essences made from different types of fruits, flowers, beneficial grasses and plants in general as a therapy. It is mostly applied by inhalation, skinning and sometimes by oral usage of the oils.

But this beautiful skill is not just that. This is the technique that observes human like a complete being, considering and nurturing all the levels of his being and doing: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

Aromatherapy is a way of life and a whole life process.

We are very proud to introduce processes of this multi-beneficial product. The main benefits of lemon balm oil are already explained here – Top 5 Benefits of Using Melissa Essential Oil and in this article, we want to highlight the very own process of growing and producing Melissa Essential Oil. Let’s recapitulate some basic info about this plant.

Melissa Officinalis (sci. name), is a very useful plant due to the essential oil obtained by distillation of its leaves. The name Melissa is actually taken from the Greek word for ”Honey Bee”. Other popular names are Balm mint, sweet Melissa, lemon balm, sweet Mary, dropsy plant, English balm, garden balm, balm mint, common balm.

It belongs to the mint family (Labiatae Family) and it grows in Western Asia, North Africa but mostly in the Mediterranean region and Southern Europe (Bulgaria). Due to its wide beneficial use, it is distributed throughout the whole world and getting more and more popular. At first, when introduced in the USA, it was only cultivated for the dried herb. It has been used for centuries, since the Middle Ages.

Melissa Oil growing and production

The same plant has a distinct fragrant lemon scent and taste. It is a spreading herb with a short root-stock. The top of the plant cannot live during the winter, but the root is more sinewy. Melissa’s stems are square and branching, and they can grow 30-60 cm. Leaves are very pretty, they are heart-shaped, and usually 30-50 mm long, shiny on the top, deeply veined and wrinkled. Lemon balm flower is either white, yellow or pale blue. This amazing plant grows best in alluvial soil, excess water is harmful, while yields diminish in light and dry soils.

When it comes to essential oil supply, Melissa Oil is often sold as being diluted or as a blend of lemongrass and citronella oils. Pure Melissa oil has its own unique properties and aroma. The true oil high cost is justified due to its hard production, manual labor involved and of course, its unique benefits and uses. It needs around 3.5 to 7.5 tons of plant material to produce just 1 pound of essential oil. The final product of this herb, which is very sweet-smelling is a pale yellow liquid with lemon freshly aroma. If you see somewhere that this oil is selling at very low prices, it means that it is not real Lemon Balm Oil, that is is badly produced and doesn’t have the main beneficial properties this oil needs to have. So, the only and true Melissa is an expensive, but multi-beneficial oil, and if you decide to buy it, don’t settle on cheap tricks, but rather decide to buy it at proven distribution chains.
