Myrtle (Myrtus communis) – Essential Oil
$16.09 – $74.15
In Neo- pagan and Wiccan rituals, Myrtle, though not indigenous beyond the Mediterranean Basin, was commonly associated with and sacred to Beltane or May Day. Myrtle was generally used in wedding bouquets as a European custom. Myrtle essential oil has been used for treating acne, oily skin, and loose pores. It was used especially around the Mediterranean and even from the Middle Ages.
Myrtle oil is said to be of great benefit in helping people to cope with withdrawal from addiction and also to soothe and ease self destructive behaviour. Added to cream, lotion or carrier oil Myrtle can be used to balance the production of sebum in the skin and thereby balancing overly dry as well as overly oily skin.
Myrtle oil has an astringent effect on hemorrhoids if used with a carrier oil and Cypress essential oil along with witch hazel hydrosol. In the 16th century the leaves and flowers were the major ingredient of a skin lotion known as Angels water. Angels water can be made using either rose or neroli hydrosol and 21 drops of Myrtle, 15 drops of Neroli and 10 drops of Rose essential oils.
