This Australian native is very high in citral (over 90%) which contains powerful antimicrobial and antifungal properties. Lemon Myrtle is an exceptional source of calcium for vegans and high in folate, vitamins A & B. Plus it tastes great whether you are enjoying it as a beverage or using in your cooking.
I love this delicate lemony tasting native shrub. It smells amazing and is so good for you. You can even burn the leaves to keep away mosquitos. If you happen to be suffering from a cold, Lemon Myrtle is perfect for assisting in fighting the infection and breaking up mucus.
