Melissa officinalis is one of the rare plants that are at the same time medicinal, fragrant, decorative, spicy, aromatic and industrial. It has been cultivated in southern Europe and northern Africa for more than two millennia. It grows in beehives, yards, near settlements, along fences and hedges, in forests. Bees simply adore it, which is why it got the name ”royal jelly”. It blooms from June to September and has a specter of flower colors, from tiny white, whitish-yellow, bluish and pale pink. It has a scent reminiscent of lemon which is why we also know it as lemon balm.

Arabs were the first to use this plant for medicinal purposes, making tea from it against tension and depression. This practice continued in the Middle Ages and vidars used it against pain, metabolic problems and insomnia, as well as for better appetite and digestion. In France, lemon balm is still the most useful plant for eliminating fatigue and headaches. For greater effectiveness, mix it with valerian, chamomile and hops.

Melissa Oil and Tea Against Depression

Melissa is a great natural remedy against mental problems, depression, anxiety, fear, tension and other disorders caused by stress. It is a particularly good natural remedy against fears of diseases – hypochondria. For the treatment of mental disorders, combine lemon balm with other medicinal plants that have a similar effect. You can use valerian, chamomile, lavender. It refreshes and improves the mood and due to its extremely pleasant smell, it is used in pharmacy, as well as in the perfume and cosmetics industry. Research by German scientists has shown that Melissa essential oil acts on the part of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, thus protecting it from negative external influences. In addition to extremely valuable oil, it also contains phenolic acids, flavonoids, bitter substances, tannin.

Melissa officinalis

Melissa tea helps to overcome stressful situations, depression, as well as headaches caused by nervousness or vomiting on a nerve basis. Stress also causes irregular menstruation and this herb can help with this problem too. In addition, it improves memory, evokes beautiful thoughts, regulates digestion. It strengthens and recovers the heart, has an antibacterial effect and helps heal wounds. It also cleanses the blood, slightly dilates peripheral blood vessels and lowers blood pressure.

Note: people who take sedatives and thyroid medications should not use lemon balm without first consulting a doctor.

French herbalist Maurice Mess best describes the value of lemon balm: “Melissa officinalis is the queen of all stimulating herbs. To a clumsy lover, a restless head of the family, women burdened with problems, desperate, everyone who is accompanied by a feeling of defeat in life, I advise this magical plant, which renews the organism, restores strength and joy of life.”

Here’s how you can make Melissa tea:

Pour a teaspoon of dried lemon balm over 200 ml of boiling water. Cover and left it to stand for five minutes before you drink it. If you decide to use it internally, you can put a couple of essential oil drops (1-2) into a cup of tea or another beverage. You can check other effective ways of using Melissa oil in this article and buy 5ml or 10ml bottles directly from us in our shop here: https://shop.bulgarianoils.com/.

The odor is the only one of the five senses that is directly linked to the limbic lobe (center of emotion control) in the brain. Thanks to this, smells can affect our mood and emotions. The scents of certain essential oils can awaken positive emotions, act soothing and even act as an aphrodisiac.

Here is an example of how scents are closely related to emotions and memory. You have probably experienced a “fragrant deja vu” where the scent evokes a strong memory accompanied by emotions. The trigger can be any scent that is associated with memory and emotions – your dad used to put on a certain after-shave lotion, mom’s cookies. Go back to the past for a moment. You may be surprised by the clarity of your memory. You can experience exactly the same emotions you felt then. This type of “deja vu” is more strongly associated with the sense of smell than with any other senses. And that tight connection between the scent and the brain is the main reason why aromatherapy has a very positive effect on the mind and body.

Essential oils are herbal products of a very strong odor. They are fragrant, volatile mixtures of various chemical compounds, liquid products of plant tissue. Many organic compounds are present in their composition: alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, various fatty acids. The basic component is terpenoids.

In general, they have a very wide application in medicine, pharmacy, perfumery and cosmetics, food, culinary and agriculture. They are fragrant mixtures, easily volatile, which are synthesized and localized in special secretory structures of plants and can be pre-distilled with water vapor.

Species that are particularly rich in oils are species from families: Pinaceae, Rutaceae, Apiaceae, Zingiberaceae, Lauraceae, Lamiaceae, Myrtaceae and Asteraceae. They can be found in every part of the plant: roots, trees, leaves, flowers and fruits of plants. Depending on which part of the plant the essential oil is obtained from, there are different types of oil of one plant.

 

Essential Oils in Pharmacy

 

Oils in the Pharmaceutical Industry

 

Oils that are of importance for pharmaceutical purposes are those plants that, by distillation with water vapor, yield over 0.01% of the essential oil. Certain essential oils are very viscous or of a solid consistency at room temperature (e.g. iris essential oil). When it comes to the organoleptic properties of essential oils, they are generally colorless, yellow or yellow-green, although there are also bright essential oils (e.g. cinnamon, clove) oils. Their odor is intense and its origin is derived from components with an oxygen group. The taste is also intense.

Essential oils are liposoluble, while the by-products of steam distillation in order to isolate the essential oils or dissolve the essential oil in water, obtain aqueous solutions of the hydro-solubility constituents of the essential oils – aromatic water. Aromatic waters are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.

These products are easily susceptible to oxidation and should be packaged in small, dark, filled bottles and stored in cold or cool temperatures.

The most valuable oils are the one that provides high-quality care (e.g. Melissa, Peppermint, Yarrow). Some of these oils could be found in this article: Most Expensive Essential Oils

It is very difficult to standardize essential oils to always have the same color, taste and aroma because there are various properties of the oils that depend on climatic factors (temperature, humidity, time of harvesting the vegetable raw material, etc.), the method of processing and the genotype of the oil (within one type there are more types of plants).

When oils do not always look the same, this is proof that this is a truly natural product without the addition of artificial colors, fragrances and preservatives. Most of the food we buy in the store is standard in the same taste, smell, appearance and color. This is thanks to the addition of a large number of chemicals that make it possible to standardize the product.

These natural products can help us with fighting lots of health problems, such as viruses, High blood pressure, Diabetes

We should always keep in mind that nature is infinitely diverse and the only real source of life energy for us!

Never underestimate the power of nature, use its products properly and nature will reveal you all of its best.

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrinological diseases of modern society. Diabetes is, to put it bluntly, a condition of elevated blood sugar. Insulin is a hormone that regulates the process of taking glucose from the blood into most cells in the body. If insufficient amounts of insulin are secreted, or for some reason, it does not affect the entry of glucose into the cells, then it is retained in the blood and hyperglycemia or elevated blood sugar occurs.

In addition to genetics and modern lifestyles, exposure to stressful situations, sleeplessness, unbalanced diet are factors that can also stimulate the onset of this disease.

The most common classification of diabetes is type I diabetes, type II diabetes and gestational diabetes.

Type I diabetes is the type of diabetes most commonly associated at younger ages. It is due to a lack of insulin and elevated glucagon. In this type of diabetes, the pancreatic cells practically do not secrete the hormone insulin. The most common symptoms are frequent urination, thirst, weight loss, impaired vision.

Type II diabetes was also called insulin-independent. More than 90% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. Most people are between the ages of 40 and 60, although it has been increasingly seen in younger people lately.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes are mild, the disease often goes unnoticed, affects both sexes and is detected when complications are already present.

Natural healing

Medicines coming from nature can also help lower blood sugar levels. Natural remedies additionally help in the treatment of diabetes, but that does not mean that you do not need to take care of your diet, increase physical activity and follow the treatment prescribed by your specialist or doctor. Celery, dandelion, fresh carrots can help lower blood sugar. Vegetables that are also helpful are the green leek, garlic and onions. Another way of fighting diabetes is the usage of essential oils.

For more than 2000 years, cumin has shown a wide range of effects against a variety of diseases, including diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, allergies, asthma and migraines but over the past 60 years, its many effective properties have come to light.

Black cumin oil is rich in unsaturated and essential fatty acids. The highest content is linoleic and oleic acids (as much as 75 to 90%), followed by palmitoleic. The most saturated fatty acids are stearic and palmitic acids. In addition, it also includes vitamins A, C, E, vitamin B complex, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, selenium, sodium, copper, phosphorus and folic acid.

Melissa Oil (Lemon Balm Oil)

Essential Oils for Diabetes

A study from 2015. has shown that this oil can successively help people with high blood sugar levels. This is because Melissa oil encourages cells to consume glucose. The team carried out the test in a lab, not with humans, but it suggests that the oil may be beneficial for blood sugar levels when a person uses it in a diffuser or applies it to the skin. The effectiveness of lemon balm oil is huge, even small amounts of the oil may help to curb type 2 diabetes.

Oregano Oil

The antioxidant properties of oregano are mild and have a central effect on the enzyme amylase, which is essential for the treatment of high blood sugar. A 2004 scientific study found that ‘marjoram’ oregano oil can reduce enzyme amylase by 9-54%, and is ideal for preventing hyperglycemia and other complications caused by diabetes. Oregano is also good for treating parasites and bacterial infections.

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.

As such 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. With that in mind, you can taste our own pure Melissa oil and be sure that you get the highest possible quality.
