Our most expensive and rare oil, melissa essential oil has a sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance and is steam distilled from the fresh flowering tops, leaves and stems of the Melissa officinalis plant. With a wide range of therapeutic properties, melissa can be used for calming the nerves, addressing stomach discomfort, and mood support or seasonal threats. Because the Melissa officinalis plant has an oil yield of less than 1/10 of 1%, it is one of the most commonly adulterated oils.
Cypress is a great essential oil! It's popularly used to clear breathing, as a throat gargle, and to ease tight, tense muscles - so it's great post-workout! But I also apply it sometimes before exercising and find it gives me a boost of energy as well. www.hayleyhobson.com
