ONE WE MISSED – MYRTLE
There’s an old saying that you learn something new every day – Marvel Oils are so, well, marvellous, that there is always something more to learn. Here’s one that slipped under even our radar – Myrtle Oil. This is an ancient oil which has some fantastic properties so we don’t know how we missed it. To remedy that, I present Myrtle, or Lemon Myrtle Oil.
So what’s so great about Myrtle Oil? For one, it balances your hormones and for another, it soothes the respiratory system. This means that if you have thyroid, prostate, ovary, skin and liver problems or bronchitis, flu, sinusitis and cancer (prostate and breast) – Myrtle Oil is your go-to solution.
Myrtle Oil is antiseptic, astringent, deodorant, expectorant, sedative, nervine (keeps you from sweating the small stuff) antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic, anti-parasitic, anti-spasmodic, decongestant and stimulant (thyroid, prostate and liver.) As if that wasn’t enough, it is also fungicidal, antiviral and aphrodisiac. And did I mention it is gentle enough for children and the elderly? No wonder it is called “The Queen of the lemon herbs.”
You can use it in mouthwash, as a deodorant, in burners, aroma lamps, vaporisers and steam inhalations. You only need one to three drops. It also blends very well with other essential oils like Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Black Pepper, Frankincense, Myrrh, Neroli and Ylang-Ylang, to mention but a few. Use it topically on wounds and acne by adding a drop or two to a smidgen of Olive Oil and apply to the skin.
