Cleaning is probably up there on the “things we’d rather not be doing” list with sitting in traffic and getting a checkup. But, with Lemon Myrtle, cleaning may not be so bad.

Add a few drops into your favorite household cleaner and let the fresh and tart aroma fill the room. It even adds extra strength to cleansers because of its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, meaning you don’t have to work as hard! Lemon Myrtle can also help sharpen the mind during foggy moments.
