Myrtus Communis is a beautiful and fragrant evergreen bush with deep green leaves and white, star-like flowers. It is native to North Africa and found all over the Meditterean.
Myrtle Essential Oil has been known to calm inflammation, tone the skin, aid in sleep, increase focus and connection, support healthy respiratory function and ease nervous tension.
A Useful Tool Dating Back to Ancient Cultures
Many early cultures highly valued Myrtle and was often referred to as the essence of The Garden of Eden. Myrtle has been known to invite protection, purity, love, beauty and blessings from God.
The Greeks assigned Myrtle to the Goddess Aphrodite and adorned the victors of the early Olympic Games with Myrtle Wreaths. Roman women would hold rituals and festivals to celebrate Venus, by bathing in myrtle infused water and perfuming their hair and clothes with its deodorizing and fresh scent.
