Quality Botanical family: Lamiaceae Latin name: Melissa officinalis Origin: Bulgaria Cultivation: Controlled organic agriculture - Certisys-BE1 control - Food grade. Part used: Aerial part Production process: Steam distillation Quality: 100% pure, natural, integral and chemotyped - Food grade. Olfactory notes: herbaceous, lemony, fresh Main constituents Terpene aldehydes: geranial (33%), neral (22%), citronellal (11%) Sesquiterpenes: beta-caryophyllene (9.5%), germacrene D (1%) Monoterpenols Our opinion This is a precious essential oil in more ways than one, as it takes four tons of plants to obtain 650 grams. If its price sometimes limits its use, think of its diluted form which does not take away much from its class! Precautions for use Not recommended in the first trimester of pregnancy or in young children. Irritant in its pure state: make sure to dilute it sufficiently for skin use. Risk of allergy (limonene, linalool, citronnellol, citral, geraniol, iso-eugenol): take care not to overdose in mixtures. An elbow test is recommended prior to any skin application (min 48 hours before use). Avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Store away from heat and light.
