Myrtle oil has a fresh and clear aroma, and is yellowish-green in colour. It is extracted via steam distillation from the leaves and twigs of the Myrtle tree.
Myrtle essential oil possesses powerful astringent properties and is often used in skin care and for oral hygiene. It also is known to fight bacteria and therefore is commonly used as a natural deodoriser, and to ward off bad odours.
