Usage & methods of application: 

Myrtle is highly regarded for its antiseptic and bactericidal properties and is a mild oil which can be very helpful in the prevention and treatment of bronchial conditions especially in children and the elderly. 

When diluted to around 3% in a carrier oil it makes a good chest rub to loosen congested lungs and because it has a less medicinal aroma than Eucalyptus it is a good replacement for that oil - especially when being used on children who may object to the aroma of Eucalyptus. 

Because it has more of a sedative action than Eucalyptus it's also a good oil to burn, vaporise or inhale at night. Psychologically it can help alleviate feelings of self-hatred and is regarded as useful for those struggling with addiction and OCD. It's seen as a purifying and protective oil. 

When blended for massage Myrtle can be effective against greasy, teenage skin and it also makes a gentle but effective muscle and joint rub.

When blended in a cream or lotion it may prove useful against a variety of skin conditions - its antiseptic properties may well help combat acne for example, especially when blended with other astringent oils.
