Nature/Essence – Clearing & Purifying
FOR THE SKIN
Myrtle is a cleansing and astringent antiseptic, good in toners for acne and oily skin. It is also a popular oil for topical haemorrhoid preparations.
FOR THE BODY
Myrtle is a wonderful respiratory oil to help clear congestion and aid immune defences during coughs and colds or for more chronic lower respiratory congestion. Use as an inhalation or add to chest rubs - gentler than Eucalyptus, it is a good choice for children or the elderly.
FOR THE MIND
Myrtle is uplifting and refreshing, helping to calm irritability and cleanse negative mental states such as fear or anger to restore harmony.
