Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil Product Sheet1

Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil originates from Australia and is extracted using steam distillation. This incredible essential oil has a sweet, lemony scent that is vibrant and uplifting to the senses.

It can give you that boost of energy that you need. Lemon Myrtle can help support a healthy immune and respiratory system, ward off seasonal threats, and help you breathe easier during times of congestion.

The wonderful aroma can help deodorize a stale room, or add to your favorite household cleaners for a fresh, lemony scent that will brighten any day!

For an energy boost add 3 drops each of Lemon Myrtle, Rosemary 1,8-Cineole Essential Oil, and Peppermint to your Plant Therapy AromaFuse Difuser first thing in the morning to start your day or in the afternoon for a pick me-up. You can also add the same blend to a personal aromatherapy inhaler for an energy boost on the go.

Use Lemon Myrtle in a steam blend to ward off seasonal threats or to clear up congestion. Place 2 drops of Lemon Myrtle in a large bowl of water that is just too hot for skin contact (not boiling) and inhale for 5 minutes. This method is not safe for small children. Alternatively, mix at a 0.5% dilution in a carrier oil or balm and use as a chest rub to help promote clear breathing and break up congestion.

The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that essential oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a medical doctor who is also qualified in clinical aromatherapy. All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.

5.0 5  OMG. Best oil for combating food smell

All those positive comments about this product are true. If you like citrusy/fresh smell, this is the one. It's very lemony, yet the myrtle makes it even more special and enjoyable. Have many oils for combating food smell, yet this one is my absolute favorite I keep coming back to. 100% recommend.

This is my favorite oil. I use it when we mop the floors and in my cleaning spray. It is so clean and uplifting. I love diffusing it in stinky places as it brightens the room and helps it smell clean. I got this oil during the Oil of the Month last year and was so excited when it was brought here as an option to purchase anytime! Love the 30 ml size.

5.0 5  Cures Molluscum Contagiosum

I applied this oil diluted in olive oil to my son's molluscum contagiosum and they made them dry up and go away! It can irritate the skin so be sure to only apply it to the bumps and not the surrounding skin. I'm so thankful for this oil because nothing else was working. I also use it in home made cleaning products and it leaves my home smelling very fresh! This oil is not subtle, it has a very strong herbal/lemony scent.
