  • Why is Lemon Myrtle so special?
    The Australian native Lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) is the source of the most potent form of citral on the earth and as early as the 1920’s the aromatherapy oil was exported from Australia to perfume and essential oil manufacturers in oil Europe excited by its superior quality.
    Apart from its esteemed culinary and fragrance value lemon myrtle is both a powerful calmative when used as a tea and a powerful anti-microbial and anti-fungal agent, surpassing even pure citral and the Australian tea- tree.
    By recognising and taking advantage of the therapeutic powers of the gifts that mother-earth has provided to us of which lemon myrtle is a most worthy and eminent member, the human race may begin to regain the vitality, vigour and resilience that is our birthright
