Myrtle is an evergreen shrub that grows more than 5 meters high and can be found commonly in the tropical and sub-tropical climes of the Mediterranean, especially in Sardinia. The plant is easily recognized by its characteristic shiny leaves, white fragrant flowers and bluish berries. The shrub blooms from May to July, whilst the berries are ripe around November. The essential oil of the Myrtle is acquired from distillation of the fresh and dried leaves, and occasionally the flowers are included.

Myrtle essential oil act primarily as a cleansing role. The oil has distinct antiseptic and bactericidal qualities, and is known to aid the treatment of both pulmonary and urinary infections. It too has a popular use as an expectorant for the treatment of bronchial catarrh.

Unlike many oils, Myrtle is safe for use with children. It is beneficial for the treatment of coughs and similar chest complaints in children. Due to its astringent properties, it is also popular for cleansing open skin pores, particularly when the skin is oily. The oil is also used as a stimulant primarily to relieve physical exhaustion.

The fragrance of the Myrtle essential oil is a fresh and clean one, with camphoraceous top notes. It has a familiar herbaceous scent similar to that of Eucalyptus.

The essential oil is known to calm and relax the mind. The scent is clarifying, purifying and protective. It is helpful in meditation for enlivening a mood of hopelessness.

Pros: Great price and fast delivery.

Cons: None that I can think of.

The most beautiful myrtle you can find out there. I've been using this myrtle for about 2 years, and I canít find a better quality than this one. I bought it when it was on sale, $83 for 100ml organic type. Great price...great purchase!
