DESCRIPTION

Lemon Myrtle is endemic to subtropical rainforests of central and south-eastern Queensland, Australia. Indigenous Australians have long used the plant both culinary and medicinal purposes and recently it's culinary use has undergone something of a revival. The oil is very high in citral, higher in fact than Lemon oil, and is often referred to as being 'more lemony than lemon'.
 
Lemon Myrtle oil has demonstrated powerful anti-microbial and anti-viral properties with one study showing it to be effective at treating symptoms caused by the Moloscum contagiosum virus.
These powerful properties may also make it useful for assisting with every day ailments such as coughs, colds and many common skin conditions, especially where infection may be present.
