Myrtle, known botanically as Myrtus comminus, is an evergreen plant belonging to the Eucalyptus family. In Medieval Europe myrtle was so well regarded that an extract of it was the vital component of a formula called Angel?s Water. North American Herb & Spice is proud to provide the finest wild oil of myrtle direct from its native soil. This wonderfully aromatic oil is great for topical as well as internal use. Rub on the face and hands for beauty.
