Description
Honey myrtle essential oil has a fresh, herbaceous, lemony aroma that likes to be noticed! A few drops go a long way. Honey myrtle is a Melaleuca oil (like tea tree). Some aromatherapists prefer this oil over tea tree for cleaning and immune protection because it has the highest citral content of any Melaleuca oil. (Citral can also irritate the skin, so dilute this oil well in topical blends.) Our honey myrtle essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves, twigs, and soft white flowers of organically grown shrubs in Australia.
Suggested Uses

Purify - Germs

Clean your bathroom with honey myrtle oil! Add a few drops to water in a spray bottle with tea tree oil.

Relieve - Soreness

Dilute honey myrtle in a skin-nourishing carrier and massage joints that feel warm and don’t want to flex.

Breathe - Cold Season

Diffuse honey myrtle oil to reduce airborne threats during cold season. Soften the aroma with sweet orange oil!

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
