Honey Myrtle Oil
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 geranial content of any Melaleuca oil. (Geranial can also irritate 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.
Benefits and uses
The soft white flowers, green leaves, and rich brown twigs of the bushy Melaleuca teretifolia shrub create a beautifully sweet, fresh, herbaceous, lemony essential oil. Honey myrtle essential oil has the highest geranial content of any of the other essential oils distilled from plants in the melaleuca family. Geranial is a naturally occurring chemical component known to have powerful antimicrobial properties. This essential oil is often used to help with pain and inflammation management as well as reduce uninvited muscle spasms. Honey myrtle essential oil can also help clear lung congestion, promoting healthy lung and airway activity. Additionally, this amazing essential oil has antioxidant properties and can help with cell regeneration.
Emotionally and energetically, honey myrtle essential oil uplifts and invigorates. This essential oil refreshes the mind, body, and spirit, helping to reduce both emotional and physical fatigue.
