lemon myrtle - australia

botanical name: backhousia citriodora

Lemon Myrtle's aroma is fresh, sparkling, more "lemony" than lemon itself. May remind you of Lemonheads...remember that lip-smacking, mouth-watering, jaw-tingling hard candy???

Lemon myrtle essential oil has been found to be an excellent antibacterial, & anti-fungal; In fact, some studies show greater results than the better known tea tree. Lemon Myrtle contains citral, the component responsible for its "lemony" smell. In fact 90-97% citral, lemon essential oil only contains about 3-10% citral. It is then safe to say that Lemon Myrtle essential oil is 10-30 times more "lemony" than lemon itself. So much more effective a flavoring agent that by WWII America's soft drinks were flavored with lemon myrtle. Lemon oil at that time was in shortage and required much more for the same end result.

Lemon Myrtle essential oil blends well with, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Grapefruit, Lavender, Patchouli, Petitgrain, Rosemary, Sage, Tea tree, Ylang Ylang and most other citrus and herb essences. For a dry, sore throat check out the more info, medica natura for an easy Lemon Myrtle remedy.
