Melissa essential oil uk

Melissa Essential Oil

With the ability to positively affect mood, Melissa essential oil is often used to reduce tense feelings, promote relaxation, and calm feelings of nervousness.

Primary Benefits

  • May help to support a healthy immune system
  • Calms tension and nerves
  • Promotes feelings of relaxation

Melissa officinalis, also known as lemon balm, received the name “Melissa” because of its sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance, which was known to attract bees (Melissa is Greek for “honey bee”). As one of our rarest and most expensive oils, Melissa has a wide range of health benefits and uses.* Melissa is used as a flavour in teas and ice cream as well as with some fish dishes. Because of its positive effect on mood, Melissa has long been used to calm feelings of tension and nervousness. Diffusing Melissa at night can help initiate a restful sleep environment and promote emotional well-being. Melissa may also help to support a healthy immune system.

Why is it sooooooo expensive?

Melissa oil is not common and it is very expensive because 7 tonnes are needed to produce 1 kg (21/4 lb) oil. It is very special, I personally treat myself to 1 bottle a year and make it last. I mix up fractionated coconut oil with 10 drops in my rose quarts roller bottle and use it as a perfume if I feel in need of comfort.

Panic attack essential oils

Essential oils for panic attacks and anxiety

For many years I’ve suffered with anxiety and depression and one of the symptoms, particularly if I’m very busy, feeling under pressure or overwhelmed, I suffer panic attacks.

A panic attack is a sudden feeling of overwhelming anxiety, and it’ll peak within minutes. A person who’s suffering from a panic attack may experience sweating, pounding heart, palpitations, accelerated heart rate, shaking or trembling, feelings of choking, feelings of shortness of breath or smothering, chest pain or discomfort, dizziness, nausea, abdominal distress, fear of dying, fear of losing control or numbness or tingling sensations.

Luckily, there are essential oils that can help relieve panic attacks, and the best essential oils for my panic attacks include lavender, rose, vetiver, ylang-ylang, bergamot, and chamomile. Read on to learn more about how essential oils can help you if you suffer them too.

Lavender

The most common essential oil for panic attacks is lavender. It may have a calming, relaxing effect when it’s inhaled. The reason for this is because it’s considered a nervous system restorative. It helps with sleep, restlessness, irritability, nervous stomach and nervous tension. Clinical trials show that inhaling lavender essential oil reduces stress and anxiety.

Rose

Rose essential oil is similar to lavender. It’s commonly used for relieving anxiety, and it significantly reduces it. Similar to lavender essential oil, rose also has calming, relaxing effects.

Vetiver

Vetiver oil is a nervous system tonic that causes calmness and stabilization, and it decreases hypersensitivity and nervousness. It’s helpful to use the oil for panic attacks and shock. Did you know that vetiver oil helps the immune, respiratory, endocrine, circulatory, digestive, excretory and nervous systems? If you’re having trouble falling asleep because of panic attacks, vetiver oil will help you fall asleep because it’s a natural sedative.

Ylang-ylang

Ylang-ylang is a popular oil that’s commonly used for anxiety and depression. The oil has calming and morally and spiritually elevating effects. The oil has been known to help with bravery and confidence. It’ll help relieve fearfulness. Similar to vetiver oil, ylang-ylang is a naturally strong sedative.

A 2006 study showed that ylang-ylang, bergamot, and lavender oils reduced psychological stress responses, serum cortisol levels,and high blood pressure levels when all of the oils were used once a day for four weeks.

If you have low blood pressure or sensitive skin, you may want to try another oil for panic attacks as ylang-ylang can decrease blood pressure and cause skin irritation.

Bergamot

Bergamot oil has calming, relaxing effects. It’s often used to help treat depression by increasing energy, but it can also help with insomnia, agitation, and relaxation.

According to a study, the oil has been proven to reduce corticosterone response in rats. Another study conducted in 2011 showed that applying bergamot oil with other oils help relieve depression and anxiety.

Chamomile

Chamomile oil may help with irritability, anxiety, and worry. A study found that the chamomile oil capsules eased anxiety symptoms when taken by mouth. If you’re allergic to ragweed, there’s a small risk that chamomile oil may cause an allergic reaction.

Final Words

Diffuser in the home

Essential oils can be used in many ways. Diffusing is very popular for anxiety and I always have a diffuser upstairs and down at home, but oral and topical application can be used also so I carry my roller ‘doterra touch’ blends with me and pop a drop under my tongue in an emergency.
