Myrtus communis, commonly called myrtle, is a broadleaf evergreen shrub or small tree that is native to the Mediterranean region. It typically grows to 5-6’ tall but may reach 15-20’ over time. Pointed, opposite (sometimes whorls), ovate to lanceolate, glossy dark green leaves (to 2” long) are strongly aromatic when bruised. White aromatic flowers (3/4”) with many yellow tipped stamens bloom in late spring/summer (May-July). Flowers are followed by blue-black berries. Berries are edible and may be eaten raw but are at best moderately tasteful. Dried flowers, leaves and fruits are used to flavor foods. Leaves are sometimes used as a substitute for bay leaves. Fresh flowers may be added to salads. Wood and leaves are added to charcoal to flavor grilled meats.

Myrtle Essential Oilis an evergreen shrub with fragrant white or pink flowers. It is native to North Africa but is commonly found in the southern Mediterranean region including France, Spain, Corsica, Tunisia and Italy. Myrtle Essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs and sometimes the flowers.

Myrtle Essential Oil is a wild aromatic plant that laboratorial works have demonstrated the insecticidal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities of Myrtle Essential Oil. The chemical composition may change according to several factors; nevertheless, it was constant in practically all EOs the presence of 1,8-cineole and ?-pinene, as main components (>5%). The biological activities, generally low or moderate depended on the organism (insecticidal) and microorganism and on the chemical composition. Generally, the contribution of the components on the biological activities was not determined; nevertheless, they were generally attributed to the presence of the main components (1,8-cineole, ?-pinene, eugenol, methyleugenol, myrtenyl acetate, among other components depending on the property). The antioxidant activity of Myrtle Essential oil was predominantly determined in cell-free methods, though very few works also used cell model methods. In all cases, the activities were also low to moderate due to the absence of phenol compounds.
