Long before I was gifted with an invitation to become part of the American immigrant landscape, I made several trips to California from West Coast Canada and grew to know the etchings of Interstate 5. Apart from the coffee welcome mat from Portland, I always felt something special when driving through Mount Shasta. I originally thought it was the view of the mountain from the road but I always had a hunch there was more to it than that. I later learned that the Shasta area is known the world over as a spiritual energy vortex. Believer or not, there’s no denying there is a special energy in that part of the drive. When we were offered an opportunity to buy Melissa essential oil from an organic farm in the area, we knew it was a distillation that belonged in our apothecary.
Melissa essential oil from the Mount Shasta area is a very special distillation. The plant was grown in a fully organic environment and has been carefully stored until its arrival at our apothecary, where it continues to be tended to with care and upmost stewardship we maintain will all our aromatics. Melissa USA offers similar aromatic support of our French Lemon Balm: fungal infections, Candida, viral skin infections and herpes to name a few. We include Melissa in our Shingles Formula for easing the pain of shingles. While Melissa is a limited distillation, it is one that we very happy to offer as an affordable option for Melissa essential oil lovers. 🌿
Suggested uses: May be helpful in treating Candida, fungal infections and in herpes formulations. Melissa has a beautiful floral note that blends well as a middle or top note in a natural perfumery composition.
