Hi it's us ...
Does that feel like a tongue twister or one of those Harry Potter spells? No spells here, Backhousia Citriodora is Lemon Myrtle
Most of us know the basics when it comes lemon myrtle – fragrant leaves that have hints of lemon, lime and lemongrass. Lemon myrtle has a delightful aroma and is a naturally antibacterial and antifungal cleaner that can effectively kill germs and mould. Many scientists have sworn that lemon myrtle has better antibacterial agent with 30% higher anti-microbial activity than tea tree oil. Amazing isn’t it?
It’s no surprise really that some of our cleaning products have the lemon myrtle essential oil in them. So we give you 4 reasons why we love lemon myrtle and why you should too:
- Lemon Myrtle is packed with all the good stuff that are extremely beneficial in aromatherapy. For more than 40,000 years, lemon myrtle has been a staple in Australia’s native food and medicinal applications, helping our ancestors ward off harmful free radicals.
- It contains natural antioxidants that can provide full-body support. The lemon myrtle essential oil can do wonders to our immune and digestive systems and is also known to soothe skin irritation.
- Anything that has lemon in it smells divine. Lemon Myrtle features an uplifting aroma that refreshes the mind and can relieve stress. Not only that, Lemon Myrtle makes the perfect ingredient for cleaning products for its natural deodorising properties.
- It has a high proportion of citral, a compound that boasts natural antibacterial properties, more than eucalyptus, tea tree and other Australian Natives.
And, best of all, the same lemon myrtle we use in our products is grown and sourced locally. How great is that?!
