The aroma is often referred to as “more lemon than lemon”.
“The oil is said to be: antiseptic, antiviral, carminative, sedative and corrective from a herbal point of view and is indicated for the following conditions: Common cold, influenza, bronchitis, indigestion and other irritable GIT disorders, herpes simplex (topically).
Therapeutically, citral has been shown to exhibit sedative, anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. Aldehydes and particularly citral have long been considered to have anti-tumour properties, though the few studies carried out have proven to be inconclusive”. (Bush Sense by Mark A. Webb).
A very effective antibacterial and antifungal. Research conducted by Penfold and Grant as early as 1925 demonstrated the ability of Lemon Myrtle to act as a powerful disinfectant. Their research demonstrated that it was a more powerful disinfectant than the more well-know Tea Tree Oil!
Works wonderfully in home keeping products such as dishwashing detergents, laundry detergents, surface disinfectants, air fresheners, etc. Lemon Myrtle leaf is being used extensively in Australian cuisine. Common applications include fettuccine, ice cream, sauces, marinades, and cakes – it tastes delicious!
