Where Does Lemon Myrtle Come From?

Lemon Myrtle trees are native to Australia originating from the subtropical and tropical East Coast of Australia, 50–800 meters above sea level. Aboriginal (indigenous) Australians and Torres Straight Islanders have long used Lemon Myrtle for various purposes.

What Is Lemon Myrtle Good For?

Citral, which is known for its cleansing properties, is the main chemical component in Lemon Myrtle. Use Lemon Myrtle to cleanse the skin or surfaces or purify the air. Always dilute Lemon Myrtle with a carrier oil to minimize skin sensitivity.

Sweet, lemony, and slightly herbal, the aroma of Lemon Myrtle is simultaneously soothing and uplifting to the mood.

What Is Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil?

Lemon Myrtle trees are medium sized with dark-green, lance-shaped leaves, which remain on the tree year-round. From summer to autumn, creamy white flowers grow in clusters on the end of the branches. 

The essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the tree. Although they can be harvested year-round, it is best to avoid harvesting during the wet season. After harvesting, the leaves are distilled immediately to ensure the highest quality oil.
