Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the flowering Backhousia citriodora plant native to Australia. This incredible essential oil has a beautiful, sweet, clean, intensely lemony aroma that is vibrant and uplifting to the senses.
An extremely potent antibacterial and germicide, Lemon Scented Myrtle Oil is a much more effective germ killer than the more familiar and ubiquitous Tea Tree Oil. Lemon Myrtle's extraordinarily high level of Citral (around 87%) make it a powerful antibacterial, antiseptic, and antifungal agent. One of our favorite ways of using Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil is to help purify the body and surrounding environment from uninvited microbial activity.
