- Myrtle has a gentle, camphoraceous aroma, which is also sweet and fresh.
- Method of Extraction: The leaves, twigs and sometimes flowers of the shrub
Myrtle oil is produced by steam distillation of the leaves, twigs and sometimes flowers of this fragrant shrub, which grows wild across Southern Europe and Northern Africa
It blends well with Lavender, Rosemary, Clary Sage, spice oils, Bergamot and other citrus oils. For a cleansing, uplifting aroma, try 3 drops of Myrtle with 2 drops of Bergamot and 1 drop of Lime in a burner or diffuser.
Other members of Myrtle’s family include Tea Tree and Eucalyptus and, as can be expected from this, it is highly anti-septic and clearing. Myrtle is not as harsh as its relatives and is ideal for use on children. To keep winter chills at bay, try diffusing 2 drops of Myrtle in a child’s bedroom half an hour before bedtime.
As its aroma is less stimulating than other anti-septic oils, try adding 4 drops of Myrtle and 2 drops of Bergamot (blended in 10ml of Sweet Almond oil) to warm bathwater at bedtime (halve the number of drops for children from 3 to 12).
