Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil Organic
Backhousia citriodora 100% pure organic steam distilled essential oil from Australia.
Named after the botanist who discovered it, lemon myrtle has been described as “more lemony than lemon” and as such was exploited heavily last century for lemon flavouring.
It is a potent antibacterial and germicide, and may be more effective against bugs than Tea Tree.
Lovely to use in the burner in winter oil, with its combination of a cheerful lemon scent and its fantastic germicidal activity.
Lemon Myrtle is also an excellent oil for oily skin and acne. However, as it is a skin irritant, do not use undiluted – mix with a little carrier oil (such as Jojoba) or your skin cleanser to aid in this problem.
Use as a steam inhalation, in the burner, in skin care or personal massage blends.
NOT TO BE TAKEN ORALLY.
