Released Thu. Feb 08, 2007 by Innova Pacific

Joining in on the popularity of essential oils and organics, Lemon Myrtle Essentials offers an entire series of products based on lemon myrtle, the newest essential oil to emerge from the Australian bush

Victoria, Australia (IPRWIRE) Thu, Feb. 8th, 2007 -- Those who enjoy using natural products will appreciate the series of body products created by Lemon Myrtle Essentials ( utilizing the popular Australian essential oil, lemon myrtle. Some products containing this essential oil are: soap, lip balm, hand cream, body lotion, mist spray, and salt scrub.

According to company director Aileen Peer, Lemon Myrtle Essentials began a product series based on this natural ingredient because "We had always desired to promote an essentially Australian product. Lemon myrtle sneaked into our hearts and we fell in love with it."

Each product in this series is natural, and many can be utilized for a variety of situations. For example, the body mist spray is commonly used as an air freshener and skin spritz.

Although tests are ongoing to determine just how effective lemon myrtle can be as a disinfectant, some customers are convinced already. For example, S. Surgeoner states, "The Lemon Myrtle spray has been invaluable this cold season... I have noticed that so far this winter we have had only one cold."

Although long used as bushfood by Aboriginals and a spice for cooking, President Bill Clinton ate a lemon myrtle tart during his 1996 Australian visit, and no one thought to use lemon myrtle in organic skin care—or anything else, for that matter—until the early 1990’s.

As effective as tea tree oil in fighting fungal and bacterial infections, this essential oil native to Australia repels insects and carries a lemon scent stronger then lemons. While lemons have a 3-10% citral content, lemon myrtle contains 90-98% citral, which gives this Australian oil its signature fresh lemon scent.
