I have done a little reading about the benefits of myrtle oil for thyroid conditions, and since it sounded like it could also benefit my skin and other conditions, I decided to try it out. I've been using it for a couple of weeks. Yesterday at an appointment with my health practitioner, I learned that myrtle has been helpful to my thyroid. So that's good. I use it not by itself but in combination with a supplement called Thyroid Energy. And also I follow a very clean diet, am careful about sleep, and employ some detox practices. I think health takes concerted effort. I was told yesterday I could stop taking my prescription for natural thyroid hormone. I have been using the myrtle oil topically, as I read somewhere. Twice a day or more if I feel like it, I apply a drop to the base of my throat. The smell is nice. It reminds me vaguely of lavender and eucalyptus.

The delicacy of this taste has haunted me for years. I have bought many oolongs searching for it, since the first one I tasted which was a gift from a Chinese friend. This oolong has NOT got the typical roasty taste. It is so very opposite: a delicate, subtle floral hint that only someone who TASTES the tea would appreciate. It is not rich, but superlative. Very precious. It is as if the tea were cured with flower petals, as is jasmine tea, BUT this is not an added flavoring; it is the quality of the tea itself. I can't compare it to anything. Floral gives the wrong impression, but is the closest I can think of. I will guard it from all my household.
I take two tsp a day and have seen a dramatic improvement in muscle cramps that used to hit me at night, and in length of sleep.
When the point of the iron fell straight down on my husband's least toe, I doctored it with hydrogen pyroxide and arnicare; there was NO bruising! It got better in 24 hours.
sometimes i take a break from this because i think oh surely this is overkill. then when i resume taking it, lots of things feel better. it helps sleep (together with a few other herbal helps), and it significantly relieves my hot flashes (together with another hormonal supplement called MenoSense).
My family of 4 always take elderberry at the first sign of cold or flu. It fends off the cold or flu almost every time. Last time, it didn't help me as it usually does; so I took goldenseal and got better rapidly.
I experimented with the number of capsules and at what time of day, and can tell that 1 capsule 3 times a day with food suits me just right. If I also combine MenoSense with another supplement called Orac Greens, my hot flashes are so insignificant I almost forget I have them.
I mix two tsp of burdock with a tsp thyme and a few additions things like fennel seed, ginger, cinnamon, in 8 oz boiling water for a daily cup of medicinal tea to support gallbladder and liver health. It has a pleasant coffee-like flavor.
I take it before bedtime. Earlier in the day I take mag glycinate. I am sleeping longer, and the foot and leg cramps that were horrible have almost entirely gone.
I take 2 at dinner. It has made a big difference in terrible insomnia. I used to have to take oral progesterone just for the sedative effect, which seemed like a bad idea to me, and with ashwagandha I have not needed the prescription!
