Lemon Balm Essential Oil (5%)
100% Pure Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) essential oil, diluted in organic unrefined (golden) Jojoba oil. 5% dilution means its ready for topical use. Anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and calming.* Biodynamically farmed and steam-distilled in Western North Carolina. The aroma is a beautiful combination of lemon and soap, just like the fresh herb that grows so prolifically but yields such little precious essential oil!
Batch MO-002 (December 2017):
Don’t let the 5% dilution fool you, this is a very potent blend! 200 pounds of fresh, biodynamically-farmed Melissa officinalis made just one ounce of pure essential oil! The pure oil is extremely concentrated. At a 5% dilution, each 5ml bottle of the blend contains the essential oil from 2 pounds of fresh herbs!
The Melissa was grown by Gabriel Noard at Pangaea Plants, a Demeter and Organic-certified biodynamic herb farm in Old Fort, NC.We partnered with Pangaea Plants to harvest and distill a row of Lemon Balm that had some freeze damage. The plants were not “pretty” enough for packaging but well-suited for producing essential oil!
Melissa oil has numerous health benefits. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral (even treating the Herpes Simplex virus).* It is calming and is known for reducing tension and anxiety. The 5% dilution is meant for direct skin application and the unrefined Jojoba oil adds a moisturizing and absorption benefit.
