Myrtle (myrtus communis) has a very light, fresh aroma. It is useful for the respiratory system, gentle for children's coughs and chest complaints. It is slightly sedative and suitable for using in the evenings to clear respiratory complaints; less sharp or stimulating.
Aromatherapy/Home Use example:
For a gentle clearing in a child's bedroom, add 1 drop Myrtle, 1 drop Lavender, and 1 drop Mandarin in 300ml of water in a diffuser.
Safety: Nontoxic, nonirritant, nonsensitizing.
