PORTRAIT

Your pregnancy should be a wonderful time; don’t let morning sickness ruin it. Melissa hydrosol is known as a digestive aid, reducing nausea, calming upset stomachs, and taming intestinal spasms and cramps, including those that may accompany colitis and Crohn’s disease. Many people use melissa daily in a hot or cold beverage to encourage their overall well-being. It calms the mind, lessening stress and anxiety. Because it has anti-infectious properties and is an immunostimulant, this daily use may also help protect you during flu and allergy season.

Melissa brings a calming presence to skin rashes and irritations. You can spritz it on your face and hands or add it to lotions to take advantage of its anti-aging properties. Studies have shown that melissa hydrosol may also be used to combat herpes sores because it is an antiviral; see the protocol in our how-to-use section.*

Melissa is gentle enough for children. Use it to soothe your baby’s diaper rash or cradle cap or in their evening bath to bring a sense of calm and to lower anxiety. Some studies have shown melissa to be effective in lessening ADHD symptoms because it calms the body while improving focus.**
