Backhousia citriodora
Warming, sweet, bushy lemon. 

Many believe Lemon Myrtle is a new Australian essential oil, however Lemon Myrtle has been harvested and distilled in Australia since 1889. It’s prized for its high citral content  a common ingredient in many cleaners, shampoos, insect repellents, gut health and anti-inflammatory products. This native Australian oil from the far north coast of New South Wales is refreshing, sweet and calming.




A Bit About Our Farm

Our Lemon Myrtle oil is harvested and distilled across multiple sites on the far north coast of New South Wales. Leaves from the Lemon Myrtle trees have a very small oil content which is why we combine oil from multiple farms. Only leaves and outer stems are harvested allowing the trees to flourish and regenerate year after year. These farms also grow Lemon Scented Tea Tree, Tea Tree, Aniseed Myrtle and Rosalina.


This plantation is hand-harvested and distilled on-site using both a mobile steam distillation rig and a permanent custom built steam distillation system. It is designed and built by Native Oils Australia and uses on-site dam water that is cooled and returned at the end of the distillation process.

Lemon Myrtle Benefits

Lemon Myrtle leaves have been used in culinary delights worldwide, so it’s no surprise that the essential oil would be equally adored. Whilst not a food ingredient, lemon myrtle essential oil is high in a natural component called Citral which is desired for its anti-inflammatory and anti-astringent benefits.

Citral is generally found in Lemon Myrtle oil at anywhere from 75% to 95% depending on when the leaves are harvested and how long the distillation runs. It is also simply a purely beautiful oil to diffuse in the home. Lemon Myrtle has a much sweeter aroma than Lemon oil and also has a little Linalool and Citronellal which is why it has a softer more delicate aroma. Natural citral is also an anti-oxidant and full of anti-bacterial qualities making it a beautiful addition to a household cleaning product.
