Air freshening: Due to its pleasant aroma, myrtle essential oil can be added to diffusers, air fresheners, or homemade cleaning products to help eliminate odours and create a refreshing and uplifting environment.

Spiritual and ritual use: In some cultures and traditions, myrtle has been associated with spiritual and ritual practices. It has been used for its symbolic meanings, such as representing love, purity, and harmony.
