The Lemon Myrtle is a tree of the Myrtaceae family. It grows only in the rainforests of Australia. Its Latin name Backousia citriodora comes from the English botanist who “discovered” it, James Backhouse, and its fresh lemon scent. Its shiny, permanent leaves, which contain the essential oil, give off a delicate lemon scent when crushed. They were also used by the Australian aborigines as a tonic drink taken as tea or as a skin plaster.
They were squeezed and inhaled to clear the airways and relieve congestion in the chest. Also used in cooking, Lemon Myrtle is one of the most widespread aromas in Australia. Due to its composition rich in antimicrobial and antifungal actis, this essential oil was historically used as a component in deodorants and soothing and purifying creams for skin with imperfections.
