General Description
This is the well-known garden herb, Bee Balm or Lemon Balm. It makes a nice lemon tea by infusion and grows easily in the garden. The yield in oil is very small, around 0.2% so that there are 2 forms on the market - the pure natural oil and the reconstructed oil (or RCO). The 'natural' has been grown in Wales, Ireland, Morocco and elsewhere but the high price precludes it being bought. Most 'Melissa' oils are reconstructed, either using natural components or synthetic compounds. It is one of the most interesting oils but with limited use in aromatherapy
