Essential oils Organic lemonbalm essential oil

The Botanical name of lemon balm comes from the Greek "melissa": meaning "bee". Used by the ancient Greeks, lemon balm was dedicated to Diana, goddess of hunting. For centuries, herborists have praised its ability to ward off melancholia. The alchemist Paracelsus had baptized it "the elixir of life". Some Carmelites even made it a famous water.
