What is the Genus Species? Myrtus communis

Why is this Information Important? There are several species of Myrtle that are grown in different parts of the world. Myrtus communis is also referred to as Common Myrtle or True Myrtle.

There is also Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) that is also distilled into an essential oil. It also has properties that are similar to Common Myrtle but their chemistry is actually quite different.

So always remember to purchase your essential oil by common name and genus species, so you know what you are getting!

Where is the Name Derived From? Derived from Latin, the word means "chaste beauty".

Why is this Information so Important? Its not, it's just a fun fact!

What is Nan's Mental (Mindset), Emotional and Spiritual Interpretation of this Oil?

Myrtle oil helps balance the male and female energies of the body by releasing anger and inner conflict. It will help those who feel suppressed or confused by life as well.

Balancing the male and female energies is important to becoming whole in our spiritual evolution. Often times we are taught to be one sided and avoid masculine or feminine traits.

What Chakra is Affected? Opens the heart, throat and third eye chakras.

What is the Corresponding Chakra Color? Blue

How Do I Use It?

Use diluted - 50:50 dilution (one part essential oil: one part of vegetable oil). Then,

  • Apply several drops (2-4) on location
  • Apply to chakras
  • Directly inhale
  • Diffuse

Can this Oil be Used for Pets?  Yes  Have your animals smell it directly from the bottle or place a drop or two in your palm, then smell. Or place a drop in your palm and pet head to toe.

Use in several professionally made blends that I use all the time! RC and Purification essential oils.

Note About Animal Use: Certain oils can be very toxic to cats. Citrus and pine oils in particular that are not of therapeutic grade! Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.

I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.

What are the Safety Precautions? Only therapeutic grade essential oils should be used for best results.

Because it is approved as a Food Additive (FA) and Flavoring Agent (FL) by the FDA, Myrtle Oil is readily available on the market in many different qualities.

Although it may be used as a dietary supplement, it is advised not to use it in this manner for children under 6 years of age.

If pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use.
