  • Myrtle oil has been used since ancient times and was reported to be the sacred plant of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. Aphrodite is often pictured wearing a Myrtle wreath on her head and for many years it was traditional that a brides head dress should be made of it. Myrtle's Greek association with love is continued today with the inclusion of Myrtle in Greek bridal bouquets.

    Safety Note:

    Non-toxic.  A gentle essential oil that is suitable for use on children and the elderly.

     Skin:

    Myrtle's astringent properties make it useful in skin care for oily skin, open pores, acne and mature skin. It is also useful in an ointment base for treating haemorrhoids.

     Mind:

    Psychologically Myrtle oil  is clarifying, purifying and protective and can be useful for addictive, self-destructive and obessive-compulsive behaviour.

     Body:

    Myrtle oil is especially recommended for respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, catarrh and coughs. It is particularly useful in a child's bedroom at night (in a safely placed oil burner) to help soothe irritable night-time coughing. It can also be used in a douche to help treat urinary tract infections.
