Words by Anny Schneider

Sometimes called "aromatic litsea".

This certified organic lemon balm essential oil is antifungal and antiseborrheic.

It treats skin mycosis, acne, cellulite and oily skin.

Antalgic and very anti-inflammatory, massage and very diluted in a vegetable oil, it is highly effective against pain related to arthritis, rheumatism and tendonitis.

On the energetic level, it is particularly useful for soothing fears, nervousness, insomnia and psychosomatic indigestion.

It promotes concentration, eliminates negative thoughts and establishes harmony by attracting thoughts and sometimes comforting presences.

Note: This essential oil is however dermocaustic, so it is important not to exceed 5% dilution in the oil in cutaneous use.

Even if it comes from the Lauraceae family rather than Rutaceae (citrus), it is wise not to expose to the sun after its application.
