With its extremely versatile lemon flavoring, it can be added to baked goods, savory dishes and is a popular infusion for teas and other beverages.
Lemon myrtle has even found its way into cleaning products and health and beauty products. Lemon Myrtle is a rich source of energy, helpful antioxidants, it is antiseptic and it contains antibacterial /antifungal components.
