Product Abstract: A plant native to Africa, Myrtle is a small botanical with many tough slender boughs, a brownish-red bark, and small, pointed leaves. It produces flowers that turn into black berries; both the flowers and the leaves are very fragrant. The ancient Egyptians used Myrtle medicinally, and there is evidence that the Essential Oil itself was being used by medical practitioners during the 19th century.
