Description

Melissa essential oil can help to uplift the spirits and help with fevers, headaches and nausea. Melissa oil calms the nerves and has excellent qualities in fighting depression and calming frayed nerves. It can be used against fungal infections.

Its sedative effect is well documented. It helps in cases of hysteria and panic and helps to slow the heartbeat, eases high blood pressure and is a tonic to the heart while regulating the menstrual cycle and helping with period pains – it’s known as the female oil. It can settle the digestive system, helps with nausea, flatulence, vomiting, dyspepsia and dysentery and has a cooling effect on fevers. It can help with headaches and migraines associated with colds. When treatment is started in the early stages, it can also be used as a topical treatment for cold sores (herpes simplex).

Uses

  • Diluted to 1% in a carrier oil for fever, headaches, depression, feeling jittery and stressed-out, soothing an upset stomach and problems during the menstrual cycle.
  • In a diffuser, 2-4 drops of Melissa oil can assist with fighting depression, having a greatly calming effect on the mind, reducing fevers, easing headaches, and combating nausea.
  • In a cream or gel, it is useful to fight fungal infections, check the blood flow in wounds and to counteract baldness and hair loss, although the high aldehyde content of Melissa oil may cause an allergic reaction in some individuals.

Emotions

Melissa essential oil can help to uplift the spirits. When burned or vapourised it can banish the blues, calm the mind, restore clarity and bring support and balance back to the spirit
