Myrtus Communis

It is used to overcome a sense of disorientation and to cushion the blow of past events, spreading compassion and kindness.
The essential oil of Myrtle, symbol of Venus, represents whoever has gained strength and love virtues. Associated with grace and femininity, it encourages us to contemplate every kind of beauty, and to come into harmony with ourselves and the world around us.
It is wild-harvested in the woods around Podere Santa Bianca.
The essential oil is steam-distilled from the flowering tips of small branches in the spring, together with young leaves.
It has a fresh sweet balsam aroma.

It fights influenza, asthma, bronchitis, phlegm, as well as acne and hemorrhoids.
If inhaled, it has sedative properties. If massaged into the affected area, it has an antifungal effect.

Suggested uses:

  • Home diffuser: add between 3 and 6 drops to 100 ml of water
  • Steam inhalation: emulsify 3-4 drops of essential oil with coarse salt in 1 l of hot water. Inhale for 20 minutes, keeping your eyes and mouth closed
  • Bathtub: emulsify 8-10 drops of essential oil with coarse salt — or alternatively milk, cream, or honey — to add to the hot water (so that the oil doesn’t evaporate due to the heat)
  • Massages: we recommend to dilute 2-4 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil
  • Cosmetics: add 2-4 drops of essential oil to one tablespoon of natural moisturizer. Besides the essential oil, we also produce myrtle aromatic water.
  • Food: we recommend 1-2 drops per 100 gr of food, to add after cooking (we suggest to always start with the lower dose and then increase it later, if preferred).

Caution: do not use in case of chronic diseases, pregnancy, or when breastfeeding.
If in doubt, please consult your doctor/naturopath
