Used to help with sore throats, infections, colds, flu and to treat infections, lemon myrtle is often used in herbal teas to help enhance the immune system and as a powerful antioxidant.
Lemon myrtle’s sweet citrus aroma comes from its natural compounds, which include citral, citronellal, and linalool.
Its unique aromas are often described as sweet lemon – perfumed with menthol notes akin to the scent you get when you lick a solid stick of lemon lolly.
The leaves can be used in all your favourite dishes, or steep them in boiling water to make a delicious, iced tea. Can also be used as an ingredient in cosmetics and herbal remedies.
