Benefits of Australian lemon myrtle for your hair


Australian Lemon Myrtle (backhousia citriodora) smells ripper and it doesn’t just stop there. It also has the highest naturally occurring content of citral, an essential oil with calming effects to help relieve stress, improve sleep, and raise feelings.

Our products are infused with its Aussomenatural aroma for wonderful scents and calming effects. Its antimicrobial properties can also eradicate and neutralise bacteria in hair and scalp and works great on sensitive skin without stripping away natural scalp oils.

This bush tucker is even so tasty that the dried leaves are used in pasta, baking, cakes and tea and have been used for thousands of years as a flavour enhancer and medicine by native Aboriginals. Try Lemon Myrtle for its sublime scent, you’ll be stoked by how it makes you feel!
