Looking for a plant that has the power to improve your mood and skin at the same time?
Look no further than Lemon Myrtle!
This Australian Superfood, the Lemon Myrtle (also known as sweet verbena tree, lemon scented verbena, lemon scented backhouse and sweet verbena myrtle) can be found growing up to 60 feet tall and only in Australian rainforests.
The leaves of the Lemon Myrtle tree contain the world’s strongest and purest concentration of natural citral. Citral has anti-viral properties that aid in the elimination of minor skin ailments.
With its high citral content, antimicrobial properties and aromatic scent, Lemon Myrtle has super healing powers when used topically and ingested.
Four ways lemon myrtle can improve your skin….and life.
- Soothes inflammation…and acne
High in anti-inflammatory properties, Lemon Myrtle has been proven to soothe inflammatory skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, bronchitis and sinus infection. The anti-bacterial properties of Lemon Myrtle aid in treating the oily skin that causes acne.
Lemon myrtle has also been taken (commonly in tea) to aid throat inflammation and soothe a troubled or bloated gut.
- Treats those mysterious red spots
Lemon Myrtle is a natural treatment for the viral skin infection, Molluscum Contagious (characterised by red bumps or lesions on the skin). This skin condition often presents on hands and is the bane of a mother’s existence as it mysteriously appears on children’s hands.
- Relieves the itch…of insect bites
Lemon Myrtle has been known to soothe the annoying itch of an insect bite and the Lemon Myrtle scent repels insects from attempting to feast on your skin in the first place. With its inflammatory properties and calming effect, Lemon Myrtle aids in reducing the redness and alleviating the itch.
- Alleviates Stress
The calming effect of Lemon Myrtle naturally relieves stress by encouraging better sleep, relaxation and uplifting feelings. The Lemon Myrtle scent helps improve the mood and soothe the mind. Smelling the aroma of Lemon Myrtle when you’re anxious or worried may help calm you down and reassure you.
