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 is 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 is a wild aromatic plant that laboratorial works have demonstrated the insecticidal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities of myrtle essential oils (EOs). 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 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.

 

The term "wild" when applied to plants or plant species refers to those that grow spontaneously in self-maintaining populations in natural or semi-natural ecosystems and can exist independently of direct human action. Venkatramna Industries have selective wild varieties of species which are being conserved to obtain oil and this is one of them. These species are the wild species (Original of their genera), means they are not Genetically modified (GMO), Non-Hybrid  and no artificial or desired characters were induced. Collectively we call them Wild Crafted Essential Oils

Myrtle's leaves and fruits have been widely used as folk medicine for the treatment of digestive, pulmonary and skin problems in many parts of the world. Its essential oil, which possesses much of the healthful properties of the plant, is also popular among aromatherapy practitioners.

Myrtle essential oil has been used for treating acne, oily skin, and loose pores especially around the Mediterranean even from the Middle Ages (Li et al. 2018; Battaglia 1997), being known as a soft, mild sort of oil with effects for reproduction, convergence, and prevention of allergy. Myrtle essential oil is suitable substance to apply on wounds. It does not let microbes infect the wounds and thus protects against sepsis and tetanus, in case of an iron object being the cause of the damage.

Safety advice

Recommended maximum adult daily oral dose of 65 mg for each myrtle oil, based on limits of 0.05 mg/kg/day for estragole, and 0.01 mg/kg/day for methyleugenol. We also recommend a dermal maximum of 1.9% for myrtle oils based on either 1.4% estragole and 0.8% methyleugenol content or 0.2% estragole and 1.0% methyleugenol content, and dermal limits of 0.12% and 0.02% for estragole and methyleugenol, respectively.

Regulatory guidelines

IFRA recommends a maximum dermal use level for estragole of 0.01% in leave-on or wash-off preparations for body and face. IFRA recommends a maximum concentration of 0.0004% methyleugenol in leave-on products such as body lotions. The equivalent SCCNFP maximum is 0.0002%
