Myrtle Essential Oil is popular in aromatherapy for a range of uses, from treating hormone imbalances, to fungal infections and mold, to being adaptogenic, to promoting skin health, and eliminating parasites. Myrtle is a flowering shrub or small tree that grows around the Mediterranean, particularly on the islands of Corsica and Sardinia.
It has a long documented use, dating back to ancient Greece where it was associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of love, and was offered as a symbol of bravery and honor. Today, myrtle continues to be used as a gardening plant, and it is also used as a flavoring for drinks and dishes.

Normalizing hormone imbalances... Myrtle essential oil acts as an adaptogen, regulating hormones and reducing the stress response. It is used in aromatherapy for treating imbalances in the thyroid and ovaries.
Reducing breathing problems... Myrtle essential oil is an expectorant, and is often used to help relieve breathing problems such as asthma, cough, sinusitis, and bronchitis.
Eliminate Fungus and Mold...This oil has been scientifically studied for its anti-fungal effects and its utility as an alternative to man-made food preservatives.
Anti-parasitic...Myrtle can be used as a parasite medicine because apparently it causes bugs and parasites to self destruct by stimulating the body's innate immune response.
Skincare... Thanks to its astringent properties, myrtle is great for reducing skin oiliness and acne.
