Myrtle

 

Country of origin: 

Extraction method: steam distillation

The Myrtaceae or Myrtle family are a family of dicotyledon plants, in the order Myrtales. This order includes myrtle, clove, guava, feijoa, allspice, and eucalyptus. All species are woody, with essential oils, and flower parts in multiples of four or five.

The common myrtle Myrtus communis, also called true myrtle, is widespread in the Mediterranean region and is commonly cultivated.

Common constituents include: 1,8-cineole, pinene, endo-borneol, camphor, camphene, pinene. Small amounts of Myrtenyl acetate and myrtenol are sometimes present.

Essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of leaves, twigs and flowers. Oil yield is 0.25-0.55%, but twice this when only fresh young leaves, flowering shoots and twiglets are used, yielding the highest quality oil. The highest quality oil originates from Corsica.
