Melissa is also known as Lemon balm. The oil is extracted by steam distilling the leaves, buds and twigs of the Melissa officinalis herb.
‘Melissa’ is the Greek word for honey. The herb derived its name from its fresh, sweet, citrusy scent that attracted honey bees.
History of Melissa Essential Oil
Since ancient times the herb and its oil have been used for various medical applications from alleviating stress-induced headaches to soothing spasms, reducing insomnia and more.
Melissa officinalis, the herb from which the essential oil is extracted, thrives in well-drained sandy loam soil, clean air, and plenty of sunshine. Dobruja Valley in Bulgaria offers exactly these conditions, which make it the ideal region for growing Melissa.
Growing, Harvesting & Extraction
At AromaOilent, we have been growing Melissa on our own farms for three generations. Melissa is harvested twice a year – in June and in September. With our trained eye and years of experience, we know when the plants have the highest yield of essential oils. At the right time, the plants are gathered mechanically to shorten the time between harvesting and extraction. Any delay during these two processes can cause the plants to lose some of their therapeutic properties. The mechanical process ensures that the plants are collected and transported to the distillery with all their properties intact.
The oil is extracted by steam distilling the plants without adding any synthetic preservatives or other chemicals. The resultant product is a 100% pure extract. Quality control, environmental sustainability lie at the forefront of every stage in the process.
Bulgarian Melissa essential oil is rich in over 70 compounds, which give the oil its characteristic aroma as well as its powerful therapeutic properties. Neral, citronellal, geranial, linalool, and germacrene are the main chemical components, making up about 96% of the oil. Other prominent components include geranyl acetate, caryophyllene, cis-ocimene, trans-ocimene, 1-octen-3-ol, and 3-octanone.
