Lemon myrtle can be used in many forms whether antimicrobial, culinary or purely for its aromatic pleasure. Read on to find out more about the properties and uses of this Australian native rainforest gift and discover the benefits of introducing it into your daily routine!
Lemon Myrtle is an Anti Inflammatory..
Due to its strong anti inflammatory properties, evidence has proven that massaging arthritic joints with diluted lemon myrtle essential oil gives relief to the affected area. It is also excellent for soothing inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and acne. Did a dreaded pimple unexpectedly pop up at the WORST possible time? Acne will occur when the skin is overproducing oil, applying lemon myrtle oil will balance the skin’s natural oils and help prevent further breakouts.
Lemon Myrtle fights Infection..
Are feeling a little under the weather? Pure Lemon Myrtle essential oil can help boost your immune system due to its antibiotic properties. It’s especially great in winter when you’re more susceptible to catching a cold or flu. It will help kill bacteria that causes a sore throat as well as reducing inflammation. If you have any nasty insect bites, pure essential lemon myrtle oil applied topically can reduce inflammation and help soothe the itch or ache!
Lemon Myrtle use in Aromatherapy..
Feeling overwhelmed? The crisp, lemony fragrance is helpful in providing relaxation when used in an oil burner or atomiser. The oil has a grounding but uplifting effect so it’s perfect for calming your mood when you’re feeling stressed or anxious. Lemon myrtle essential oil is best used diluted with water or a carrier oil, due to its potency. Take a deep breath and enjoy the soothing effect it has on your senses!
