What’s the difference between Myrtle and Lemon Myrtle essential oil?
  • Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) and Myrtle (Myrtus communis) are most similar in name rather than chemical composition and aroma. Myrtle is herbaceous, sweet, medicinal, and earthy. Lemon Myrtle is citrusy, sweet, tart and fresh. Therapeutically, Lemon Myrtle adds extra strength to cleansers because of its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, meaning you don’t have to work as hard. It can also help sharpen the mind during foggy moments. Native to the Mediterranean and Western Asia, Myrtle grows from evergreen shrubs that produce fragrant pink and white flowers. Because of its potent antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, Myrtle is also a phenomenal addition to any all-natural household cleaner as well as in skincare blends.
What does Myrtle essential oil look like?
  • The Myrtle plant, Myrtus communis, is an evergreen shrub that is beautifully fragrant. Its leaves are glossy and green and the flowers that bloom from this shrub are star shaped and have long stamens. The flowers produce a berry that is purple to black in color. The essential oil is made from the leaves and the fruit and it is considered a top note with a thin consistency that is pale yellow in color.
