Antidepressant: It is an effective mood lifter and an antidepressant. It has been found to drive away sadness and inspire joy and hope.
Cordial: This means that it invokes warm feelings and provides actual warmth to the respiratory system and the cardiovascular system. One can avoid frequent colds with the help of this property.

Sedative: Good for calming inflammation, anxiety, nervousness, trauma and shock. It also promotes sleep due to this property. It relaxes the body, mind and soul while bringing feelings of peace and contentment.
Antispasmodic: Spasms can occur within the respiratory, muscular, nervous and digestive systems and can lead to severe coughs, muscular cramps, convulsions, shortness of breath and severe abdominal pains.
Stomachic: Melissa oil, being a stomachic, helps in the smooth functioning of the stomach and the digestive process. It helps heal any wounds, scratches, or ulcers in the stomach, maintains proper flow of gastric juices and bile into the stomach, and also protects it from infections.
Carminative: Gases that build up in the intestines are forced out by this oil. It is very effective in expelling gases by reducing the tension in the abdominal muscles and reliving things like bloating and cramping.
Antibacterial: Melissa oil has antibacterial properties and has been found to be effective for inhibiting bacterial infections in the colon, intestines, urinary tract and kidneys.
Diaphoretic & Sudorific: Promotes sweating or perspiration. These properties are very beneficial to health since along with the sweat, a lot of toxins are removed and the pores on skin are cleaned so that some harmful gases like Nitrogen may escape. This is called helping the skin breathe; perhaps you didn't know that not all gases are formed in the stomach. Perspiration also cools your body down when it is overheated.
Febrifuge: Being an antibacterial, Melissa essential oil fights against bacterial or microbial infections in the body, including those that cause fever. Again, since it has sudorific properties, it helps to reduce body temperature and removes the toxins produced during fever, through the process of sweating.
Hypotensive: This is something which may be of immense benefit for hypertensive people who run the risk of heart attack or brain hemorrhage whenever their blood pressure goes up. Melissa oil, being hypotensive in nature, brings down the blood pressure.
Tonic: A tonic is meant for all around benefits for the health of your body. A tonic keeps everything in order, makes sure that all the systems function properly, boosts immunity and gives added strength.
Emmenagogue: Many problems related to menstruation and Post Menstrual Syndrome can be treated with the help of Melissa oil. These include problems like obstructed menses, irregular menses, pain and extreme fatigue during periods, untimely menopause, annoyance, and depression after menopause.
This oil is also found effective in the treatment of Herpes, sores, ulcers, fungal infections, headaches, and fatigue. It also boosts memory.
