Lemon Myrtle Oil
Our organically crafted lemon myrtle essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the flowering lemon myrtle plant cultivated in parts of Australia. One of our favorite ways of using lemon myrtle essential oil is to help purify the body and surrounding environment from uninvited microbial activity.
This essential oil from the Backhousia citriodora plant has a strong, sweet, clean, lemony aroma. It is known to have an extremely high citral content, giving it remarkable germ busting capabilities and making it an excellent addition to DIY cleaning products. Lemon myrtle essential oil is also useful in supporting healthy respiratory function. Additionally, lemon myrtle is being studied for its possible use with treating Ringworm (Tinea). We recommend using this lemon myrtle essential oil at a 1% dilution (5-6 drops per ounce of carrier) for skin and 3-5 drops in a diffuser.
Emotionally and energetically, lemon myrtle essential oil is very uplifting and refreshing. It can also have a sedative effect that can help with relaxation and calming the mind in times of anxiety and stress. If used before bed, it is believed to help with getting restful sleep.
