The exquisitely uplifting and refreshing aroma of this essential oil is only the beginning of how beneficial it can be.
Beyond the aroma is a potent anti-microbial agent with one of the highest levels of Citral (up to 98%) in a natural essential oil. Studies at Charles Sturt University in Australia have shown Lemon Myrtle Oil to have 30% more anti-bacterial activity than tea tree oil. In topical use Lemon Myrtle oil should be diluted with a carrier oil at a level of one drop to 10ml carrier oil. This diluted oil can be used for various skin conditions and fungal infections such as athlete’s foot. If irritation occurs then discontinue use.
