Myrtle has been revered since ancient times and its use as an antiseptic and lung remedy remains to this day.
Nature/Essence – Clearing & Purifying
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.
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.
Myrtle is uplifting and refreshing, helping to calm irritability and cleanse negative mental states such as fear or anger to restore harmony.
