Myrtle Essential Oil

Myrtle essential oil has an invigorating aroma with properties that can help beautify and enhance the appearance of healthy-looking skin.   Native to the Mediterranean region, myrtle is a large, aromatic evergreen shrub in the Myrtaceae family. According to Greek mythology, the plant is associated with love, fertility, peace, and youth.  Biblical references note that the myrtle tree is seen as a symbol of God’s promise, blessing, and abundance. Myrtle essential oil has a fresh, invigorating aroma similar to Eucalyptus, and it provides several skin care benefits when applied topically.

Diffusing Notes

These are approximate drops.  Adjust recipes to your needs.  If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired.  You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils.  Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils.  These diffusers are safe to run all day.  Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing.  Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water.  For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.
