People are discovering that not only does lemon myrtle tea provide stress relief and a tasty solution to insomnia, but that it is amazing at clearing up problem skin.
Used topically in conjunction with being drunk as a tea, lemon myrtle cleanses the skin while its antimicrobial properties clear up pimples, acne and other skin complaints. It’s also very high in vitamin C which is a nutrient that greatly benefits the skin.
The CSIRO, the Australian government’s chief scientific body, has recognised the amazing health benefits of lemon myrtle and is currently working with indigenous Australians to develop the production of lemon myrtle.
Lemon myrtle has a pleasant tangy lemon flavour with the merest hint of eucalyptus and lime. Imagine a refreshing summer breeze blowing through lemons in the form of a deliciously satisfying drink.
- Lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora)
The Australian Aborigines have used lemon myrtle for millennia due to the herb’s relaxing properties.
It has strong antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial properties, and when applied to the skin, it is highly effective against pimples, acne and other skin irritations. It is also an astringent, which means it cleanses and tightens skin.
Its high vitamin C content means it exerts a strong antioxidant effect, and can be used in cold and flu season to prevent falling ill.
This refreshing tea can be enjoyed warm or cold, and makes a great iced tea.
We recommend taking it either first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, for the best results, or last thing at night.
- Do drink up to 3 cups a day.
- Considered safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
- Safe for children.

WHAT IS LEMON MYRTLE USED FOR?
Lemon myrtle is both a popular tea and an equally popular flavouring used in cooking, especially sauces, dips, and with white meats like chicken and seafood. These days you can find more elaborate recipes for things like lemon myrtle cheesecake and lemon myrtle shortbread.
DOES LEMON MYRTLE TASTE LIKE LEMON?
Yes. Citral is a chemical substance that provides flavour and aroma. Lemon myrtle contains the highest amount of citral of any plant in the world – 96-98%. The humble lemon contains just 2-5%.
In fact, if you like a really strong lemon taste in your cooking, use lemon myrtle rather than lemon.
IS LEMON MYRTLE GOOD FOR SLEEP?
Yes. The Aborigines used the crushed lemon myrtle leaves to help them relax enough to fall asleep.
IS LEMON MYRTLE GOOD FOR THE SKIN?
Yes. In fact, you can find a range of skin care products with lemon myrtle as a key ingredient. It is especially effective as an astringent to reduce skin irritations and tighten pores. You could even add it to your shampoo as it is great for hair.
CAN LEMON MYRTLE BE USED TOPICALLY?
Again, yes. Another traditional use of the crushed (chewed) leaves was to make a paste which the Aborigines rubbed into sores, wounds, infections, and boils to heal them. It can also be used internally and externally to deal with acne.

Very happy with the product. It does relax me and I feel it has helped with the quality of my sleep
I drink it, and use it on my skin. I can't see the point in wasting hundreds of dollars on skincare when something natural and organic, at a fraction of the price, works just as well. I find the tea cleansing, and since I started using it on my face, my skin has never looked clearer
Lemon myrtle tea is one of the most refreshing teas you can drink. It's great for the skin and makes you feel energised just by inhaling its aroma
