Myrtle (Myrtus communis) is a medicinal herb that has been used in traditional medicine and alternative medicine for its many therapeutic benefits. Myrtle is an adaptogen that can stimulate an increase or a decrease in thyroid activity depending on a person’s condition (1).
Myrtle oil has been researched for normalizing hormonal imbalances of the thyroid and ovaries. It also has benefits for decongesting the respiratory system and the sinuses. Additional research also indicates myrtle to possess many other therapeutic qualities that could be beneficial for diabetes, inflammation, cancer, and lower blood sugar levels.
