dōTERRA Melissa Melissa officinalis

Melissa is one of the most sensitive crops grown by doTERRA.  Whereas Rose petals must be distilled same day; Melissa leaves must be at the distillery within hours of harvesting, to get the yield and quality required of the essential oil.  Because of this, all Melissa essential oil sold by doTERRA is grown within 50km of the Esseterre distillery in Bulgaria – farmers outside of this radius cannot sell Melissa to doTERRA because of the extra time required to get their harvest to the distillery.

Description - doTERRA Melissa essential oil

Melissa officinalis, also known as lemon balm, received the name “Melissa” because of its sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance, which was known to attract bees (Melissa is Greek for “honey bee”). As one of our rarest and most expensive oils, Melissa has a wide range of benefits and uses. Melissa is used as a flavour in teas and ice cream as well as with some fish dishes. Because of its positive uplifting scent, Melissa has long been used in situations of tension to help calm feelings and promote a sense of centred-ness and balance. Diffusing Melissa at night can help initiate a restful sleep environment and promote emotional well-being.


  • Diffuse at night or rub on forehead, shoulders, or chest for feelings of calmness and to promote emotional well-being.
  • Diffuse to create a relaxing environment before a restful night’s sleep.
  • Add to moisturiser or a spray bottle with water and spritz on face to revitalise the appearance of the skin and feel refreshed.

Directions for Use

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.

Food additive use: Add 1 or 2 drops to food.

Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimise any skin sensitivity. See additional precautions below.
