History of Myrtle Essential Oil
Myrtle is a plant widespread in the Mediterranean regions, especially in Corsica, Sardinia and Sicily. It is used to make various liqueurs. But we also know that these small berries similar to juniper are appreciated for their therapeutic properties.
Myrtle and red Myrtle belong to the same species but grow in very different conditions (season, soil, climate, altitude, humidity, sun) and therefore produce oils with different molecules. This is called a chemotype difference. Myrtle has a much higher concentration of myrtenyl acetate than green myrtle, which is more concentrated in alpha-pinene.
Properties of Myrtle Essential Oil
The properties of Myrtle Essential Oil are explained by the presence of active compounds originally present in the leaves and twigs of Myrtus communis cineoliferum (green myrtle, common cineole myrtle).
Expectorant and mucolytic
The richness of the oil in alpha pinene and 1,8-cineole stimulates the mucin glands, which thins the mucus and facilitates its elimination. A very interesting property to fight against cough.
Respiratory, venous, lymphatic and prostatic decongestant
Thanks to its richness in alpha pinene and limonene, Myrtle Essential Oil tones the vein walls and helps improve blood and lymphatic circulation. 1,8-cineole is also very active in soothing inflammation of the entire respiratory tree.
Anti-infective and antiseptic

The contribution of the essential oil to the antioxidant system and its immunomodulatory capacity makes it possible to globally increase the immune response to external aggressions. It is therefore recommended for diffusion in sick rooms, in the event of convalescence, epidemics and viral or bacterial infections.
