Lemon myrtle, scientifically known as Backhousia citriodora, is an evergreen tree belonging to the Myrtaceae family, which includes other well-known plants such as eucalyptus and tea tree.

The lemon myrtle tree typically grows up to 20 meters (about 65 feet) tall in its natural habitat, although it can be smaller when cultivated. Its lance-shaped leaves are glossy and emit a strong lemon scent when crushed, hence its name.

In addition to its aromatic leaves, lemon myrtle produces clusters of creamy-white flowers with fluffy stamens. These flowers attract pollinators like bees and butterflies.

Lemon myrtle is valued for its aromatic qualities. It contains high levels of citral, which is responsible for its strong lemon scent.

Lemon myrtle essential oil boasts a variety of potential benefits. Its refreshing citrus aroma can uplift moods and promote a sense of clarity and focus. When used in aromatherapy or added to personal care products, it can impart a pleasant fragrance that invigorates the senses.

Additionally, lemon myrtle oil is sometimes utilized for its potential cleansing properties, making it a popular choice for natural cleaning products.

Overall, incorporating lemon myrtle essential oil into your daily routine may offer a range of aromatic and practical advantages.

Safety data: Very potent and not to be used on sensitive skin. Avoid use during pregnancy.
