Myrtle Essential Oil
Antiseptic, cleansing and balancing. Used in skin care blends, Myrtle Essential Oil is a powerful tonic for devitalized skin, and highly regarded for its astringent properties that improve oily, irritated and acne-prone skin. Since it is an effective non-irritating antiseptic agent, this oil can be used to prevent infection under a wide range of circumstances.
Along with eucalyptus and tea tree, Myrtle Essential Oil belongs to the Myrtaceae family, so it is not too surprising that this oil also possesses antiviral, bactericidal, fungicidal and germicidal properties. Due to its gentle action, aromatherapists often prefer to use myrtle rather than other antiseptic oils when treating children or the elderly, particularly when used for respiratory relief with tickly coughs and catarrh.
Myrtle Essential Oil has a fresh, herbaceous-spicy aroma that is a little reminiscent of eucalyptus, but warmer and sweeter. In common with certain other essential oils, myrtle is a potent adaptogen, which means it is a natural substance that helps the body regulate either under, or over-stimulated hormones or functions. This regulating effect of Myrtle Essential Oil has recently been investigated in research where it was tested restore reduced thyroid function in the body (hypothyroidism).

I ordered some Sandalwood Oil. It arrived very quickly but it was not the sort of oil I wanted. This was my fault as I don’t know one type of oil from another. I rang Customer Service and .she was very helpful but they didn’t have the type of oil I was looking for. She agreed to refund what I had paid as soon as they had received the oil I was returning. I would highly recommend this company.

This was my first order with the company, the items are very nice quality, include some more unusual oils that aren't easy to get; items were delivered very quickly and packaged very well. I'll definitely order again.
