Our Wildcrafted Monarda Essential Oil (Monarda fistulosa) is also known as Bee Balm and comes wildcrafted from Canada

Monarda is known by many names: Bee Balm, Horsemint, Oswego tea (for the Oswego Native Americans who used the aerial parts medicinally) and Wild Bergamot (not related to the Bergamot Orange, which produces an essential oil known as Bergamot). Like all of our EOs & Blends, Artisan Aromatics Monarda is the highest therapeutic quality bottled by hand in USA.

Monarda is a wonderful addition to the garden because its showy pale purple flowers attract bees and other pollinators (hence the name Bee Balm). It’s a perennial in the mint family and it grows wild here in the Appalachians, especially in the partially shaded areas at the borders of our forests. Sweep your hand through it to catch a whiff of its pleasant aroma. Growing and tending plants, or visiting them in their natural habitats, are a great way to take your aromatherapy practice to the next level. By getting to know the plants, you’re better able to use their essential oils.

Several species, including Monarda fistulosa and M. didyma, have a long history of use as medicinal plants by many Native Americans. The Blackfoot recognized the strong antiseptic action of the plants, and used them in poultices for infections and minor wounds.

Use Monarda essential oil in perfumery for a top note that isn’t too sweet with a fresh, herbaceous, citrus, slightly sweet and floral.

Monarda essential oil is a potent antiviral, anti-infectious, broad spectrum antibacterial and antifungal, anti-inflammatory and sedative.
When having problems falling asleep you might try Monarda alone or it blends well with any of our Lavender Oils.  Diffusing  Monarda combined with Lavender is especially relaxing at bedtime.
