LIVING LIBATIONS - Melissa Essential Oil

An ancient Greek tonic that has created a buzz across the ages, Melissa Essential Oil is steam distilled from the fairy-flowers of Melissa officinalis, a delight of honeybees. In fact, the name Melissa means honeybee in Greek! It is a fairly common garden herb yet the genuine essential oil is rare, as the distillation yield is precious. Each summer Living Libations get their yearly reserve of this exquisite, sweet-smelling essence.
