Melissa (Lemon Balm) Essential Oil
I was looking for a supplier of Lemon Balm essential oil for so long and finally found Elena Bath & Body. The oil was sent to me with care very promptly and is just beautiful. It's a bit less sharp than lemon myrtle and has a lovely clearing and comforting scent and energy about it. I use it in the diffuser, in soaps and mix it with shea oil and use it as a body moisturiser. I always get a lot of compliments when I wear it as a scent.
