The Myrtle Plant: For Decor or For Skincare?

The Myrtle Plant comes from the diverse Myrtus Leaf family. There are about 700 species of Myrtle. This unique species loves sun and fresh air, but also grows well indoors. The Myrtle plant is used in many ancient and modern cultures. In some cultures, a vase with a Myrtle leaf was displayed on a window sill as decoration. In ancient Greece, the Myrtle branches represented those who did not suffer during battles or wars. The scent of Myrtle oil (which has medicinal properties) was commonly used in perfumes. Breweries also liked to add a handful of dried Myrtle leaves to their dishes. In addition to these versatile uses of Myrtle, this plant is also beautiful in full bloom.
