Lemon Myrtle is sometimes also known as Lemon Scented Verbena. Our Organic Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of Backhousia citriodora, a plant native to Australia.
Organic Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil possesses a beautiful, intensely lemony aroma. It is comprised of 87% citral, making the essential oil especially beneficial when incorporated into diffuser blends, sprays and other products intended to support the respiratory and immune systems and to support overall wellness. When carefully used at minute dilutions within skin care applications, the oil can be helpful in formulations intended for oily skin. Organic Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil also helps to combat odors and is also a highly beneficial ingredient when incorporated into surface cleaners and other household cleaning products.
Emotionally, Organic Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil is highly uplifting and energizing.
Avoid in formulations intended for children under age 2 and those with sensitive or damaged skin. Do not exceed 0.7% Organic Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil in topical applications as advised by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young within Essential Oil Safety (Edition 2).
