'Melissa is frequently adulterated: Lemon Grass, Lemon or Lemon Verbena being mixed with, or substituted for the genuine oil. True Melissa is rare and costly. I am often asked why this is so, given that the plant is as prolific as a weed. The answer is that the plant has an unusually high proportion of water in its make-up with only a very small amount of the oily essence. So, like other costly oils, it takes a huge amount of plant material to produce a very, very small amount of essential oil.' - an excerpt from Aromatherapy an A - Z by Patricia Davis.
