Lemon Myrtle is a native Australian rainforest tree. This rare tree species is indigenous to moist, isolated locations along the subtropical and tropical east coast of Australia. The leaves of this tree have a wonderful aroma of lemongrass, lime and lemon. Lemon Myrtle has the strongest and purest source of natural citral (the flavour and scent of citrus).
Lemon Myrtle is known for its calming and uplifting properties, and is more antibacterial and antifungal than its other Australian counterparts – Tea tree and eucalyptus. It has high levels of vitamin A, E, zinc, magnesium, calcium and folate. There is evidence to suggest that the extract can be of use in the bloodstream as an aid for diabetes in that it slows release of glucose into the bloodstream. It also contains high levels of chlorogenic acid and lutein (an important protein in eye function) which is generally only available in animal products.
