The lemony and minty Melissa essential oil is a favourite for many essential oil aficionados. Please be aware however your Melissa oil should not smell like your Citronella oil or Lemongrass oil. Once true Melissa is profiled you will always remember its beautiful and unique aroma. It is truly uplifting. An amazing essential oil for your collection. Most melissa essential oil sold is adulterated and extended with much cheaper oils so if the price is too good to be true it has to be a fake!
Melissa essential oil blends pretty well with allspice oil blends like Rosemary, Thyme and Bay oil.
