History of Essential Oil

The berries and leaves of the Myrtle plant have been employed in treating diarrhea and dysentery. Dioscorides prescribed the herb for bladder and lung infections through an extract derived by macerating the leaves in wine.

Myrtle flowers and leaves were a major ingredient in ‘angle water’, which served as a skin care lotion in the 16th century.

The essential oil was cultivated, harvested and extracted from Albania.

The Myrtle essential oil is extracted from the leaves of the plant.

The essential oil is 100% pure & natural. Meaning, the essential oil comes from plants that are free from any kind of dilutions, chemicals or pesticides usage.

The extraction and harvesting methods focus on sustainability of the natural ecosystem, ensuring that the balance between human needs and nature’s bounty can coexist in harmony. We ensure that every essential oil sent to our customers are in its purest and natural form.

Method of Extraction

The Myrtle essential oil is extracted via Steam Distillation from the leaves of the plant.

The botanical material (Myrtus Communia) is placed in a still and hot steam. The aromatic molecules from the plant material are released as the hot steam excretes out the oils kept within the plant material. The molecules of these precious and volatile oils escape the plant and evaporate into the steam.

The temperature of the steam is carefully controlled to ensure that the plant material and the essential oil are not burned but is hot enough for the extraction of the essential oils out of the plant.

The steam which contains the essential oil passes through a cooling system to condense the steam into a liquid. The liquid substance which contains both water and the essential oil are separated. The essential oils are then stored in a dark and cool environment to maintain optimal potency levels and reduce oxidation.

Cemistry Testing

Using industry best practices, the Myrtle essential oil is tested with a Gas Chromotographic Spectrometer to ensure that correct beneficial compounds are at the essential levels required for a true therapeutic effect.

The essential oils must go through a meticulous quality assurance test to ensure that the essential oil has the right aroma, color and viscosity.
