Melissa - Lemon balm

Traditional herbal medicine recognizes two major health beneficial effects of Melissa: calming, relaxing, sleep promoting and anti-inflammatory, antivirus, antibacterial. Melissa is similar to Lavender, also well known for its relaxing and antiseptic action. Both kinds of effect have been confirmed to a degree by modern scientific studies and several bioactive constituents of Melissa have been isolated.
In several countries preparations of Melissa are approved by health care authorities as a remedy to combat sleep problems, nervousness, agitation. The sedative action is attributed to synergistic action of a combination of ingredients, including terpenes citronellal, citronellol, geraniol, linalool, limonen and phenylpropanol derivatives, such as eugenol. Some of these constituents along with tannins were shown to have antivirus and antibacterial action. Accordingly, Melissa ingredients are utilized in preparations intended to combat skin virus infections, like herpes.
