Oil Summary : Myrtle oil can be used to treat coughs, respiratory issues, and colds. This oil is also used for insomnia, fatigue, and acne. Myrtle oil is extracted from the Myrtle plant, an evergreen shrub native to the Mediterranean region. This herb can grow to a height of five meters. The leaves and flowers are fragrant, and it produces small blackberries as fruit. Genuine Myrtle oil has a pale yellow to orange color with a camphor-like, peppery green scent similar to bay oil. The primary constituents are limonene, camphene, 1,8-cineole, linalool, and myrtenol. This oil has more than a few beneficial effects on health and well-being. You can inhale it when experiencing insomnia, stress, and anxiety, apply it on the skin to treat acne, and administer it on wounds to keep infections away. You can incorporate Myrtle essential oil as part of your skin-care regimen by adding a few drops to your regular lotion or rose water. This mixture is particularly effective for treating severe acne. If you are suffering from a malignant cough, try diffusing some Myrtle oil in your room. You can also dilute a few drops of the oil in hot water and inhale the steam.
