Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Your Myrtle Oil is fantastic! I'm asthmatic - I'm tired of all the "chemical" ways to treat it. So upon my research I came across a article that recommend Mrytle Oil along with Nutmeg oil. So, being open minded and having researched it's antimutangenic, liver, thyroid, & prostate stimulant, decongestant and antispasmodic qualities decided to start applying 2x a day. Morning and evening. I applied a small amount to my neck and chest areas. Wow! I've been able to cut back on my medication much to my doctor's surprize. I've suggested it to a friend who 3 yrs ago was diagnosed with 3rd stage lung tumor. She check with her doctor who agreed it wouldn't hurt to try it. Well she began applying it to her chest and along with Nutmeg Oil and I'm please to report that it has now started to shrink in size and she's still with us!! ORAC: 25,400uTE/100g! Thanks from the bottom of my "lungs" for this great oil.

As a novice, I followed some info I had read and used this in a face wash for acne. It has not prevented the acne (I'm working on something new,) but has helped to heal the acne I get much more quickly than I usually heal. So from a skin treatment standpoint, it works well!
