Myrtle Historical Snippets:

Myrtle symbolised love throughout ancient Greece and Rome. It was often planted around temples, worn as crowns by Eleusinian Mystery priests and in a 16th century skin formula called “Angels Water”. Myrtle was also incorporated into Greek weddings and is still today. The plants properties were described by Culpepper as “drying and binding”, so it was used to treat wet conditions such as diarrhea and dysentery.

Shelf Life of Myrtle Essential Oil: 

Our freshly decanted Myrtle essential oil will last for 2-3 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.
