DESCRIPTION

Myrtle was a revered and sacred plant in several ancient civilizations including the Persians and the Greeks. The oil is regarded as being beneficial for the respiratory tract, in particular for chronic conditions and children's chest complaints where it makes an excellent addition to a soothing chest rub. It also has astringent and antimicrobial properties making it potentially useful in the management of acne and oily skin. It's astringent properties mean it has also been used in topical preparations for haemorrhoids.
