Melissa has been researched at improving mood and emotional outlook in elderly patients (small amounts may be used in a diffuser). It has also been reported to support deep rest ( a couple drops massaged on the tops of the feet, particularly with Lavender, might help many people).

Melissa is the number-one researched essential oil for treatment and prevention of HSV outbreaks. Some individuals apply one drop directly to the affected area 2 to 3 times per day, and ingest one drop a day as well. IF you find direct application is too intense, mix with a little virgin coconut oil (the dilution is not important) and apply this way. Some naturopaths also recommend application at the base of the spine, as this is though to be where the viruses remain dormant.

Ananda’s Fantastic Melissa Essential Oil

Much research has shown melissa essential oil as an excellent treatment for Herpes Simplex 2, and has been researched as a potent antiviral agent against other viruses as well. It seems to both eradicate the viruses directly,  as well as prevent infection of healthy cells. Because of its antiviral properties, we’ve included it in our Super Immune blend, a combination of the most renowned antiviral essential oils — for both topical and diffuser use.

Melissa has also been shown to stabilize blood sugar levels in recent research. In  2010 report in the British Journal of Nutrition, melissa significantly lowered blood sugar levels and increased receptivity to insulin.

There has not yet been a protocol developed for humans, but the amount used was so incredibly small, that it may be that ingesting one drop of this oil daily may support blood sugar control. Also, diluting the oil in any carrier at about 1% concentration can be used as a massage on the bottoms of the feet, as well as the base of the spine.

Here’s some great recipes using Melissa essential oil:

For support of herpes outbreaks and prevention of their recurrence:

In one half ounce of Tamanu oil. Tamanu does have an interesting pungent aroma unto itself, but is highly therapeutic at skin healing. These oils are all very safe, and can be used regularly as needed.

For a simple uplifting and mind brightening blend for your diffuser, try 1 part Melissa to 10 parts Lemon. Lemon has been shown to have a host of benefits improving mental acuity, and Melissa will add an interesting touch to the aroma, as well as the effects. Enjoy!
