This Australian grown Lemon Myrtle has a rich lemon scent, making it an enjoyable cup of tea but also a medicinally beneficial one as well.

Lemon myrtle is exceptionally rich in calcium and high in antioxidants, lutein, vitamin E, zinc and magnesium. It is an overall immune booster and has been found helpful in treating indigestion, bloating, and other gastrointestinal disorders.

Lemon myrtle has a reputation as a powerful antiseptic and anti-virus agent that can destroy disease-carrying microorganisms. It has been used to treat allergies, colds, sore throats, and infections.

Lemon myrtle can also be your stress reliever. It provides a calming effect by inducing better sleep, and relaxation. The herb is known to help ease menstrual cramps due to its ability to relax muscles. It can also help reduce premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, especially bloating, headaches, and irritability.

First Nation people used the Lemon Myrtle leaf for food flavouring and as an insect repellent, burning the volatile leaves on the campfire. A natural antiseptic paste was made with Lemon Myrtle leaves to help heal wounds.

If symptoms persist, talk to your health professional.
