Quick Overview

Synergy Essentials 100% pure essential oil of Myrtle, steam distilled from the leaves of the Myrtle bush, organically grown in Tunisia. This a a bright, fresh, very therapeutic distillation of Myrtle essential oil.

Botanical Name: Myrtus communis

Also known as Corsican Pepper, the Myrtle tree is typically 3-7meters in height with reddish brown bark, pointed leaves and small white or pink flowers. Native to North Africa, the trees used for essential oil are cultivated in Corsica, Spain, Morocco, Italy and France.

About the Oil
This essential oil is of the communis variety (commonly referred to as 'green' Myrtle) and is revered in medicine because of its high 1,8 cineole content. Green Myrtle oil is also considered the most valued of the Myrtle varieties for use in aromatherapy as it has the most complex and pleasant aroma.

This oil was steam distilled from the leaves of organically grown Myrtle trees from Tunisia.

Aromatherapy Notes
A grassy lime-like top note, followed by a powerful eucalyptus, medicinal middle note and undertones of wood and dried leaves.

It blends well with Clove, Jasmine, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Rose and Sandalwood oils.

Traditional Uses
Historically, the leaves and berries have been used for 'drying and binding, good for diarrhea and dysentery. Dioscorides prescribed Myrtle for lung and bladder infections in the form of an extract made by macerating the leaves in wine. The leaves were also the primary ingredient of 'angel's water', a 16th century skin care lotion.
