Lemon Myrtle


Introduction


Previously only available in Australia and New Zealand markets, Lemon Myrtle made its U.S. market appearance in 2018 when it was included in the doTERRA Convention Dream kit. From its name, you may think Lemon Myrtle is just another addition to our wonderful citrus oil collection; however, this essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the flowering tree, Backhousia citriodora. Native to Australia, Backhousia citriodora has a long history of use in health and dietary practices by the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.


Chemistry


When you open a bottle of Lemon Myrtle, the fresh citrus aroma should immediately remind you of another great essential oil: Lemongrass. Lemon Myrtle and Lemongrass contain many of the same chemical compounds, giving them similar aromatic profiles and supportive benefits. Pure Lemon Myrtle essential oil contains an exceptionally high concentration of citral, the common name given to a naturally occurring mixture of geranial and neral. These two monoterpene aldehydes are geometric isomers, which means that they contain the exact same number of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms and that their chemical structures are nearly identical. The only structural difference between geranial and neral is the arrangement of the aldehyde group around one of the double bonds. 

Benefit Directed Usage

Diffuse Lemon Myrtle to enjoy its fresh citrus aroma or to invite feelings of relaxation.
 

Experimental trials have demonstrated the surface cleansing properties of citral1,2. Add a few drops of Lemon Myrtle to your home cleaning products to enjoy its aromatic benefits and to protect against environmental threats.
 

In vitro studies have reported citral to have antioxidant activity and also support natural cellular antioxidants and related enzymes. As a result, citral may promote normal function of healthy cells. Specifically, citral may help support the health of liver cells and proper DNA replication3,4.*
 

Conclusion

A rich source of citral, Lemon Myrtle can impart a number of health-promoting benefits. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a bottle of this incredible essential oil, look for opportunities to incorporate it into your wellness routines.
