All pure essential oils should be used with care. Do not apply directly into skin. A 2% dilution of essential oils to a base of carrier oil or lotion is recommended for all skincare and massage preparations.
100% Pure Melissa Leaf Essential Oil
It is very difficult to obtain the genuine oil. Many of the so-called melissa oils on the market are blends of cheaper lemon-scented essences such as lemon, lemongrass and citronella, sometimes with the addition of synthetic chemicals. Although true melissa oil is popular with aromatherapy doctors in Germany, it is a relative newcomer to aromatherapy and has not been thoroughly tested on humans. Available data indicates that the oil can irritate skin and provoke sensitisation reactions in a few people. Always use in the lowest recommended concentrations.
USAGE: Add 1-3 drops of Bianca Rosa® essential oil to every 5 mL (1 tsp.) of carrier oil for massage or skin care needs. Add 5-15 drops (depending on strength desired) to bath water. Add a few drops of oil to a water-filled spray bottle to create a refreshing room spray, or add to diffusers to create warm room scent. CAUTIONS: Always do a test patch when applying oils to the skin (particularly citrus oils) to determine if itching, soreness, or redness develop. Store away from heat and light. Keep away from eyes, nose, and mouth. Bianca Rosa® essential oils are for EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
