After trying all the lemon balms (melissa), this one wins everytime. Yes, it's pricey but very potent. It has a beautiful lemony top note with an earthy (but not musty like others can be) ground. Truly, a lovely oil.

This is without a doubt the best Melissa leaf oil available. I have tried other companies, even ones purporting to be organic, but this one gets consistent results. Although expensive, it is the best value for the quality you get.

I wish I could justify the price of buying this oil :) I grew up with Melissa (planted outside), so it is one of those scents that is so comforting and grounding. While I still grow the plant for tea (and preserve some of it dried, for the wintertime), I have always wished for the essential oil. Maybe I'll try your dilution first.

Like all NDA essential oils, this melissa is a high quality therapeutic grade and very well priced. Much of what is sold as "melissa" in the retail market is merely a mixture of lemongrass and citronella. THIS is the real thing: clean, clear, uplifting, icy cool and highly medicinal - like no other individual essential oil or oil blend. The high price of true melissa is a result from the volume of plant material required to yield just a small amount of oil: approximately 7.5 tonnes to yield approximately 1 kilo of essential oil.

In 06 I had someone steal paperwork to my home, causing anxiety. I was put on xanax. I used your melissa oil to get me off the xanax sucessfully. I now use it occasionally for sleep and extra stressful days. It only takes one drop. It works better than Young Living and you get more for your money. I highly recommend it to anyone needing that part of their system reset naturally.

I have been using your Melissa oil. It allowed me to get off RX that can be very addicting. My anxiety is doing great. I found it to be the best Melissa on the market at any price. I will continue to shop your web cite and buy from you.

I just had to write that I gasphed at the sight of the price for this oil. Not that it is too much, but just compared to other oils. I do have a suggestions for anyone (like myself) interested in this oil. Plant the herb yourself and extract the oil into an olive oil base. I would try it if I had a garden, which I will soon. Nothing is impossible!

Wonderful healing properties, and lovely soft scent that you can tell from the very beginning of first opening, this oil is special and could help the most dismal, gloomy and pensive heart rise up and be grieved or broken no more! I will lament my own sorrow when my Melissa is gone! It is far worth the price for all its healing properties. Be careful who you purchase you Melissa from as soooooo many dilute or use others with similar characters to replace the true Melissa, but none are as wonderful as this one!
